My wife was with our off-leash dog in a park during designated off-leash hours. Another off-leash dog ran up to my dog and provoked her. A fight ensued, and my dog seriously injured the other dog and suffered minor injuries. The other dog bit my wife's hand while she was trying to break up the fight. Her injury was fairly minor, but it did require a doctor visit. The other owner was 40 feet away when the fight started, while my wife was next to our dog. We have witnesses to confirm this.
Now the owner of the other dog is threatening to take us to small claims court to cover his dog's vet bills. Who would win this dispute?
