Dog bites are common in Hudson County, but few gain national attention. One dog attack that did make the national news occurred in 2010.A male pit bull named Giant, who lived in a luxury apartment in uptown Hoboken, mauled three people before being shot by the police.It took four Hoboken police officers, a Hoboken police sergeant, and a Port Authority police sergeant to bring down the dog and help the victims.
Across the country, about 4.7 people will be bitten by dogs every year. Most victims are children and teens.About 800,000 people per year require medical treatment as a result of dog bites, and 12 die.

Dog bite victims need to be especially concerned about rabies, a disease that is usually fatal unless treated early.
Rabies can be spread from wild animals to domestic pets, and Hudson Country and other New Jersey counties have detected rabies in foxes and other wild animals.
Hudson County residents should be aware of, and keep their pets away from, any wild animals who exhibit the following behavior:
- Overly aggressive
- Unafraid of people
- Moving rarely
- Falling over while standing or walking
- Walking or running in circles
Dog owners must assure that their pets have been vaccinated against rabies, to prevent the spread of the disease.
In addition to rabies, dog attacks can cause puncture wounds, broken bones, and permanent scars.Dog bite victims are often entitled to financial compensation for their injuries, and many dog owners carry homeowners’ insurance policies that insure against the risk of dog bites.
