Brianna Nicole Shanor, an 8-year-old girl from Hanover Township, Pennsylvania, died Monday after being attacked by a dog.
Shanor had been staying with William Renda, a friend of her mother, for the past month. Renda has several large dogs on the property. The dog that attacked Shanor was a mixed-breed dog weighing over 100 pounds.
Shanor walked past the dog on her way into the house. The dog, which was on a 15-20 foot chain, bit her in several places, including her neck. When Renda went to check on the girl, he found her lying inside a nearby trailer. She was taken to a nearby hospital, but doctors were unable to save her life. The dog has been quarantined after the incident.
Dog bite injuries can be very serious, especially when the dog attacks a young child. If you have been the victim of a dog bite, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. It is also a good idea to consult an experienced dog bite attorney. You may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries.
