A CHILD’S GUIDE FOR AVOIDING ANIMAL BITES

April 26, 2016

Here are some things that you can do to avoid getting bitten:

Dogs and cats usually want to be our friends, but sometimes they get sick, grouchy, or scared and might bite us. It is important that we be careful and respect pets and other animals so that we don’t get bitten or scratched.

Wild animals are meant to stay wild. They are not friendly like our pets. If a wild animal is being friendly, it means that it is probably sick and you should stay far away. Wild animals will bite if they are caught or cornered.

Bites and scratches from animals have to be cleaned. People who are bitten or scratched usually have to go to the doctor.

-NEVER go toward an animal that you do not know. -DO NOT play with an animal unless there is grown-up with you. -DO NOT run or scream around a dog. -DO NOT chase animals. -DO NOT go up to the animal. DO let the animal come to you and sniff you first. -DO NOT stare into the eyes of a dog. -DO NOT bother an animal that is sleeping, eating, or taking care of young. -DO NOT bother an animal that has been hurt. -DO NOT tease animals. -DO NOT feed animals by hand. DO put the food in a dish or on the ground. -DO NOT touch wild animals. -DO be still like a statue if a dog that you do not know comes to you. -DO roll into a ball and be still like a rock if a dog knocks you over. -DO Tell a grown-up if you see any stray or sick animals. -DO leave the animal alone if it growls at you, shows it’s teeth, or looks nervous. -DO be gentle! Animals have feelings too! -DO tell a grown-up if you get bitten. If you follow these directions, you will be able to get along better with the animals around you. *Remind your parents to make sure your pets have their rabies shots.
