Dog Manslaughter Attorney
[Content Updated Feb 7, 2021] - So what exactly is “manslaughter” by a dog? To many people, this would be a misnomer. After all, a dog does not even know how to read the Penal. Code. And those people would be correct. A dog is a chattel property like a gun.

Because of this, the only way a dog, like a gun, could harm a person is due to a person’s harmful conduct. Right? Well, hold on. While that may be true for a domesticated dog, a wild dog generally won’t pass on liability to a human. But in cases where a person owns a dog, wild animal, or not, the human may be obliged to pay the dog attack victim.
If the dog kills someone, the survivors claim “wrongful death” (Defined here, and see also video explanation of negligent death law here).
