One of the most infamous “blame the victim” comments left at DogsBite.org was left by an anonymous user following the horrific attack of Charlotte Blevins. The commenter blames the child’s mother for not having insurance (which is false; Wendy did have insurance coverage) after a pit bull owned by a third party nearly killed the child.

Question, why does Wendy Blevins not have insurance to pay for this? Not that it’s her fault that her daughter was attacked, but if the attack happened to me, insurance would cover it. Why is she apparently uninsured? – Anonymous

The commenter also questions whether or not Wendy is a good mother. Wendy immediately straddled the attacking dog and pulled it off of her daughter. As the scalp ripped off, blood flew everywhere, including all over Wendy. – DogsBite.org
