People who own pets often say that they are like members of the family. While that sentiment is understandable, the fact remains that pets can still cause damage to property and other people. Massachusetts families may be interested in a recent animal bite case that made headlines. Entertainer Wayne Newton is being sued over a claim that his pet monkey bit a teenage girl who was touring his home.
Though it's nearing the end of summer, lots of kids in Massachusetts are still enjoying time outdoors on their bicycles. Most parents have talked with their kids about the potential increased risk that bike riders of all ages face, but that doesn't always keep young people safe. One family is dealing with that very fact after two teenage twin boys were injured in a vehicle accident while riding their bikes.
