Dog Bites Children on Maryland School Bus

By Alpert Schreyer on June 6, 2011

Four children were injured recently when a dog chased them onto their school bus and bit them, according to a news report from MyFoxDC.

The children, who were elementary school students, were waiting at their bus stop in Clinton, Maryland, when they were approached by a large and aggressive American bulldog. According to the bus driver, the children got on the bus to avoid the dog, but the dog followed, biting one of the children from the bus stop as well as others who were already on the bus. A Prince George’s County police officer responded to the 911 call for help and shot the dog.

The injured children were taken to Southern Maryland Hospital where they received treatment for bites and bruises. Some of the children required stitches, but all four were able to go home with their parents the same day. The Prince George’s County Health Department was unable to determine whether or not the dog had rabies, and the department has recommended that the children bitten in the Maryland dog attack be tested for the disease.

Although human cases of rabies caught from a biting dog are rare, dog bites are far too common. Nearly 800,000 people each year are bitten by a dog, according to the CDC. Many of them are children, and many others require medical attention from a hospital or urgent care center.
