An injury caused by an animal is in America considered a property-type of injury because animals are the property of their owners. So if you (or your child) are injured by an attacking dog, a bucking horse or a cow in the middle of the road you are at the right place for answers. Snakes, Burmese Pythons seem to be a very popular pet in the southern United States. I'm not sure what pet's would be popular and considered exotic to Midwesterners.

Dogs that seem to be in the news and involve personal injury include pit bulls, Rottweilers, Bullmastiffs, Boxers and Doberman Pinschers. Wikipedia has a list of the people killed by dogs in the United States along with a description of the dates of death, the type of dog breed and the circumstances leading up to the death.

What is running at large? The law talks in terms of animals running-at-large and that simply means the animal isn't under the immediate control of the owner, not properly restrained, penned in or caged.
