Woman Attacked by Dog in Hotel

Florida relies on tourism to support the state's economy.  Many hotels permit their guest to bring their dogs along, but typically the dogs must be restrained or leashed when in the hotel's public spaces.

Recently, in Connecticut, a woman was seriously injured when attacked in a hotel hallway by another guest's dog.   The victim was visiting a friend who was staying in the hotel.  The friend was taking care of a relative's pit bull. 

The victim suffered serious injuries, and the other woman was reportedly having a difficult time keeping control of the pit bull.  The police officer who responded to the scene also had to fight off the dog. When the animal latched onto his arm, he shot the dog.  The dog survived the gun shot and was removed from the hotel without anyone else getting hurt.

The dog is under quarantine, and authorities were working to find the owner in an attempt to find out if it had ever done this in the past.  The owner of the dog that was responsible for the serious injury suffered by the woman may be held liable for the damages caused, such as medical bills of the victim.  In Florida, there are strict liability laws that typically make the owners financially responsible for the damages caused by an unprovoked dog attack. The fate of the dog may also be in question if it is deemed dangerous or vicious by authorities.

I am so sad to read about what happened to the poor lady. It is really important to have strict rules in hotels. I think they should specify what type of dogs must be allowed to go inside and that they should be strictly prohibit dogs without leashes and there must be a dog owner beside it or even holding it. They must do this in order to ensure the safety of their guests. Thank you for this information, more power!
