Poll: Have You Ever Been Bitten By a Dog?

Ohio ranks fourth in the nation for the highest number of dog bite claims to one insurance company and Cleveland rates fourth in the nation for mailman dog bites.

I'll take the dog bite over that ANY day!

As a groomer, I have been bitten a couple of times. The worst was a schnauzer who nearly took my thumb off. All 4 canine teeth punctured my thumb & I ended up in the Cleveland Clinic. I wasn't even grooming him. He got out of his cage and ran right for a German Shepherd who was on the floor. I grabbed him to protect him from the Shepherd and he turned around and bit me. Instinctively, you just want to protect the dog.

I completely agree with Peter! This poll needs more options. I have been bitten by a dog in Lakewood, I required plastic surgery. But, I am NOT afraid of dogs.

I agree as well. I've been bitten by a dog before but that doesn't mean I'm not careful with them or that I don't like them anymore. It's presumptuous and a bit insulting.

Points well taken readers. I toyed with just yes and no, but that didn't feel right either. Appreciate your feedback.
