Over the weekend, a dog known to Henderson County Animal Services as aggressive attacked a woman in the River Oaks community. According to WLOS ABC News Channel 13, the owners previously surrendered the dog after it mauled a smaller dog last year. The owners later re-adopted the dog, after they were given notice that it was going to be euthanized. They were required to follow strict safety guidelines, since the dog had a history of aggression.
A recent press release from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) outlines the importance of 15-passenger van safety and maintenance this summer. Summer camps, church groups, youth clubs and other organizations frequently use 15-passenger vans to transport children and adults. The NHTSA wants to remind owners and operators of 15-passenger vans that they do carry some additional safety risks to be aware of.
