For some real information on Pitbulls, start with the recent study “Mortality, Mauling, and Maiming by Vicious Dogs 2011”

i notice the usual Pitbull Nutters are posting their usual lies and propaganda. For some real information on Pitbulls, start with the recent study “Mortality, Mauling, and Maiming by Vicious Dogs 2011”

–> Over a recent 3-year period from January 2006 to March 30, 2009, a total of 98 dog bite fatalities involving 179 dogs occurred; 60% of the deaths were caused by pit bulls, and 76% were caused by pit bulls and Rottweilers. A total of 113 pit bulls were involved in these deaths, and they accounted for 63% of the dogs involved in fatal attacks. If the risk of fatal attack is normalized to Labrador Retrievers and Labrador-mix breeds (the most common registered dog in the United States), the relative risk of death related to pit bull attacks is more than 2500 times higher.

In one 85-day period from July to September 2008, pit bulls were involved in 127 dog attacks, 57% of which occurred off the owner’s property. In these attacks, 158 people were injured, 63% of them severely; 10% of the victims suffered severed body parts; and 6 victims were killed. 12 In the same period, 128 dangerous pit bulls had to be shot to death by police officers or citizens. A closer look at these figures indicates that 1 person is killed by a pit bull every 14 days, a person loses a body part to a pit bull attack every 5.4 days, 2 persons are injured by pit bulls each day, and 1.5 pit bulls are shot to death each day.

Dog bites are a serious public health concern in the United States and across the world. They result in substantial emotional and physical trauma and in a substantial economic cost to the victims and to society. Fortunately, fatal dog attacks are rare, but there seems to be a distinct relationship between the severity and lethality of an attack and the breed of dog responsible. The unacceptable actuarial risk associated with certain breeds of dogs (specifically, pit bulls) must be addressed. These breeds should be regulated in the same way in which other dangerous species, such as leopards.

Pit bull viciously attacks Chesterfield girl

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) –
A young girl was viciously attacked by her neighbor’s dog, but the owner says his dog was just being protective.

13-year-old Rebecca Harris suffered bites and scratches to her arm and stomach after Tuesday’s attack.

Rebecca told NBC12, when she got off the school bus Tuesday, she stopped by a friend’s house.

According to Rebecca, that’s when the friend’s 2-and-a-half year old pit bull escaped from the home and lunged at her, first grabbing her stomach with its teeth, then her arm.

The owner was able to pry the dog off once – but the second time, the pit bull held on, leaving deep wounds requiring stitches.

Rebecca and her family are waiting for the swelling to go down for a doctor to determine if there is nerve and muscle damage.

“I still feel safe in this neighborhood,” said Rebecca. “I don’t blame the dog, I blame the owners.”

The owners of the pit bull didn’t want to go on camera. Off-camera, the owner told NBC12 that the pit bull attacked because he felt threatened when Rebecca ran toward their front door.

In a Facebook post, the owner’s daughter says “…me and my [boyfriend] told everybody to back up but…Rebecca didn’t so my dog ran out the door and attacked her. I feel bad for Rebecca but it was her fault.”

The dog’s owners are facing criminal charges and are due in court February 28.

The pit bull is being held at Chesterfield Animal Control.

Police charge owner of pit bull killed by police officer in Lebanon

Police have identified and charged the owner of the pit-bull killed by an officer in December. Police have charged Christine Webb, 45, from Lebanon, with Dogs Running at Large.

On December 15th, 2012, police say a pit bull charged the officer twice before he shot and killed the dog. It happened in the grassy common area west of the 13th Street parking lot for Brookside Apartments. The officer was responding to a complaint of two dogs running loose behind the Brookside Apartments. The officer spotted the dogs, described as a poodle and a “vicious” pit bull as he walked to the grassy area. According to a press release, when the pit bull saw the officer it bared its teeth and charged him. The officer sidestepped the dog, but when it turned and charged him again, he shot and killed the dog.

Advice to survive a pit bull attack – why pit bulls are different from normal dogs

The normal dog bite prevention advice is to stand still, avoid eye contact, don’t run, back away quietly. Normal dogs do not want to fight, they want you to leave, so they let you leave.
The “good” pits’ goal is the mauling, the shredding, the crushing. That’s why they won’t let the vicitm leave, or live. These behaviors won/win dog fights, so dogs who didn’t act like these dogs were killed by the dog fighters.
When pits/pit mixes are attacking, the new advice must be SCREAM LOUDLY, DON’T STOP, PRAY that a brave neighbor, passerby, or police has a gun and is a good shot, or has a LONG knife and will kill the dog(s). Most dogs won’t attack silently from behind, for no reason. “Good” pit bulls WILL!
Proof that pits ARE different from normal non-bully dogs? Essentially ALL US dog fighters still only use pit bulls.
