Dog bite victim, 10, pushing to change 'One Bite Law'

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. – A 10-year-old, who was seriously hurt after being attacked by a dog five years ago, will be at the Capitol on Monday, pushing for support of a bill named after him.

The Frankie Flora Law would hold dog owners accountable for the first time, and every time a dog bites someone. 

Frankie was attacked in 2009 and has since had 29 procedures to repair the damage. Since the attack, he has become an advocate for the law, which supporters say protects future dog bite victims.

The current “One Bite Law” does not hold dog owners accountable for the first time a dog attacks someone.
