Intentional Animal Attacks are fairly rare, but can leave the victim with some horrific physical injuries. Often these attacks will involve dogs, but it is important to differentiate between those attacks that have been instigated deliberately by the owner of the animal, and those attacks that are caused directly by the animal itself.
Often for the latter, a policy of insurance will be in place to compensate the victim of an animal attack. For those instances where the attack on someone was deliberate, the victim is likely to be left with both scarring and psychological injuries which are both compensated by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
