Vidor, TX – Vidor Officer Injured In Dog Attack on Alamo St
Vidor, TX (August 30, 2019) – A dog attack on a Vidor officer leaves one injured.
On August 25, the Vidor Police Department responded to the scene of an incident in the 500 block of Alamo Street after receiving a report of aggressive dogs in the area.
The officer reported to an area home around 11:30 a.m. When the officer arrived at the scene, two dogs charged at the officer. The officer responded by using the Taser, which had no impact on the animals. As the officer turned to retreat to her vehicle, she was bitten by one of the dogs.
The officer was admitted to an area hospital for treatment. The dog did not have a rabies shot, so the officer remains in quarantine until results come back to determine if an infection is present.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time.
Dog Bites in Texas
Dog owners have a legal requirement to keep their animals on their property. In Texas, property owners can be held liable for injuries or damages their animals cause to others. This is especially true in cases where dogs attack and injure individuals in the area.
Dog bites can result in extensive damage. Not only are victims left to deal with permanent scarring, but they often incur muscular and nerve damage that has a lasting impact on their life. When victims are injured in dog bite accidents, it is crucial that they contact a premises liability attorney in Texas as soon as possible.
