Legal Question

Asked on: 8/12/13, 5:31 pm

Hi I live in Oregon, there is a law that all dogs are to be on leashes. I took my 7 year old daughter to a children's park not a dog park, As she was walking into the play area two dogs came after her with no leash on. They chased here until she stopped then both attacked her. She suffered to bits to the leg. My husband and I had to chase the dogs off of her. The owners of the dogs never tried to get them off of her or so much as called there dogs. We had to find them as they were trying to take the dogs and walk away. We called the police and filed a report and told them we want to press charges. So far animal control is trying to find shot records and haven't found any. We took my daughter to the hospital right after and she had to receive a tetanus shot. Which was added pain on top of the dog bites plus emotional trauma. The wounds are not severe but I feel she was wronged and the pet owners were very irresponsible! What can we do about this? Thank you
