Louisiana is a state that loves the great outdoors. Whether it’s hunting dogs, fancy dogs, or mutts- you see them on hunting trips and in parks. Our state dog is the beloved Catahoula hound. Unfortunately, most people only think about dog bites and the law after they’ve had a dog bite them.
Despite their long history as man’s best friend, dogs descend from wild and predatory animals. Sometimes they act instinctively. The teeth of predators can tear and crush flesh and bone. Even tiny toy dogs are capable of giving you a nasty gash that could leave you needing stitches. In very rare circumstances, large dogs or groups of dogs can maul a person to death.
