Sometimes, dog attacks happen. They are scary, unexpected, and can result in some serious lasting physical and emotional damage. It is even worse when they happen to young children. One such dog attack happened recently in Lancaster, PA. According to Lancaster Online, a dog recently attacked two children who were sitting in carseats in a minivan outside getting ready to go inside their home. The dog, who gave both young children serious facial injuries, had broken through a fence and approached the children. One of the children is in the ICU, while the other child was recently released from the hospital. The owner of the dog chose have it euthanized after a period of quarantine to make sure that it doesn’t have rabies.
