KGPE-TV Fresno, CA reports that an attack on a middle-aged woman by a pair of pitbulls in Downtown Fresno is likely to lead a civil lawsuit, according to a legal analyst. The report cites Fresno Allstate insurance agent Rene Uribe, who recommends that pet owners purchase animal liability coverage “just in case there is an animal attack.” But Uribe noted that certain breeds, such as pitbulls, do not qualify for the insurance. “There are some animals that are actually excluded. We don’t cover them because they’re vicious and they can cause damages,” Uribe said.
