This case involves a young child who was injured by a large dog in a church parking lot. The child was walking through the parking lot of the church with his mother at the time of the incident. As they walked past a field next to the parking lot where a dog was walking with his owner, the dog, which was off its leash at the time, charged them. The child began to run away from the dog when he fell and hit his head on the pavement. It was alleged that the owner of the dog, which was a large and powerful breed, should have had the dog on a leash while out in the field.
