Michigan imposes strict liability on all dog owners because dog bites are dangerous and often fatal. It was only last year that a man from Metamora Township was killed while jogging when two dogs chased him and attacked. The law is in place to protect the public. Failing to hold someone responsible for a dog bite could mean that there will be another victim.
