Care stressed at bite prevention week

During National Dog Bite Prevention Week, Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control reminds parents to supervise the interactions between children and dogs.

Statistics show 800,000 Americans seek medical attention for dog bites each year; half of which are children, agency officials said. The rate of dog bite-related injuries is highest for children ages 5 to 9, and nearly two-thirds of injuries among children 4 and younger are to the head or neck region.

Animal Care & Control department provides dog bite awareness materials to schools and tour groups and at community events. For more information, call 427-2590.
