Texas: Dog owners have a duty to stop attacks

Via this post at How Appealing, the Austin American Statesman reported that the Texas Supreme Court entered a ruling late last month indicating that people with dogs have a duty to stop their dogs from attacking once an attack has started. According to the article, the victim of the bites claimed that the dogs' owner "watched the attack from several feet away, did nothing to intervene and even scolded [the victim]'s son for trying to calm the dogs so he could rescue his mother."
