Organization brings data to dog bite discussions
6/1/09 / Beth Mulligan
Corona is pleased to share some recent research conducted on behalf of the Coalition for Living Safely with Dogs. Corona was retained by the Animal Assistance Foundation to provide an analysis and report of data collected by the Coalition on dog bite incidents reported to animal control agencies in Colorado. The Coalition released the report to the public in recognition of National Dog Bite Prevention Week (May 20-26).
This research effort is the first of its kind and represents a significant accomplishment in the effort to gather statewide, quantitative information about the circumstances in which dog bites occur, and characteristics of the dogs and victims involved. We applaud the efforts of the Coalition in working to gather this data and bring accurate and unbiased information to decision makers. (After all, that is our mission!)
