Pit Bulls are powerful and sometimes vicious dogs. A Jacksonville woman was walking her small dog when she passed a home with two Pit Bulls. The Pit Bulls escaped the fence and began attacking the woman and her dogs. The victim did not have life threatening injuries but did have dog bites to her leg and her dog. The Florida Times Union reported this story at- >Pit Bull Attacks Jacksonville Florida Woman Walking Her Dogs.

Florida’s Dog Bite Statute covers any dog that bites a person. Whether a person is bite by a Pit Bull or a Poodle, liability is still the same under the statute.
