2,924 San Antonio citizens were bitten by an animal, from mostly dogs, last year. The city tied for second worst in the nation. Over 25,000 dogs were hit and killed by cars, and 29,000 were put in the pound. It seems San Antonio has an inexhaustible supply of dogs and the city estimates there are 150,000 strays here.
The city is pushing responsible ownership practices this week as they raise awareness of dog bites. What can be done about our city before it becomes the land of the roaming dogs?
