The statute also holds pet owners liable for other dog related injuries or damages to people or property that are caused by dogs chasing, jumping or playing.  So long as the injured person was not trespassing on the land or teasing or tormenting the dog, the owner or keeper of a dog is strictly liable for any injuries or damage caused by the dog.
