Dogs are prone to attack children because they aren’t able to read the dog’s signs. For example, if a dog is scared, an adult can recognize this and won’t get close to the nervous. This doesn’t happen with children, they are more likely to approach the dog, triggering a defensive reaction.
Why Children Are More Affected? More than half of the dog bite victims are children between the ages of 5 to 9. They are more careless than an adult, therefore they have higher chances of getting bitten by a dog. Also, their small size makes them an easy target. According to the American Humane Society, close to 60% of the injuries are inflicted in the child’s head or neck, which are very delicate parts. Like in adults’ cases, the arms and legs are also affected.
