PMID:  1123600     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of multiple animal bite wounds is presented along with the techniques used to apprehend the culprits. The victim was a 13 month-old black female who had in excess of 80 puncture wounds. Initially the wounds were thought to be caused by a mechanical instrument but, after an autopsy, were determined to be caused by a large animal. Two German shepherd dogs were apprehended and impressions of their teeth compared favorably with the wounds from both the casts made from the body and the body itself. The etiology of the wounds was further substantiated by microscopic examination of one of the wound sites. The identification of bite wounds and the techniques used to confirm the identity of the culprit are discussed.
