Insurance companies do not like dogs…
At least not OTHER peoples' dogs!
In 2011, insurance companies paid a whopping $479 million in dog bite claims. State Farm alone paid $109 million from 3,800 dog bite claims.
Children five to nine and seniors are the most bitten, and Californians have it the worst, with 527 claims equaling $20.3 million filed last year.
El Lay recorded the most bites of any city with 83. San Diego was second with 68.
The average cost pet claim? $28,799! And the ASPCA claims that half of America's children will be bitten by a dog by the age of 12!
What is going on with all the dog bites?!
