Pets are best friends, but you should never forget that they have an animal instinct that can manifest itself at any moment. Christine Caron, unfortunately, overlooked this. Beloved dog Buster bit a woman during a game. Six days later, the mother of four children went to the hospital with flu-like symptoms. After that, the unfortunate woman fell into a coma and woke up a month later. It turned out that the pet's bite caused sepsis in the woman, because of which three limbs were subsequently amputated.
