"The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published a study concerning deaths from canine attacks in 2000. [34] According to the study, between 1979 and 1998, one-third of all fatal dog attacks were caused by Pit Bull type dogs. The highest number of attacks (118) were by Pit Bull type dogs, the next highest being Rottweilers at 67."

News reports of injuries and fatal attacks

"News media stories of pit bull attacks involving disfiguring injury to humans and other animals, the latter very often also fatally, ranging in size from attacks on smaller nonpitbull dogs [80] [81] to horses [82] [83] [84] [85] [86] [87] can be found globally. [88] [89] The pit bulls involved were not always loose and off the owner's property, but sometimes were inside the home of the owner, who, or a family member or visitor, was the victim of the aggression. Fatal pit bull attacks to children and adults have been reported by the English-language news media in the United States and United Kingdom. [90] [91] [92] [93] [94] [95] [96] [97] [98] [99] [100] [101]"

[QUOTE=Defender;17081]Pit Bulls and dog bite related human fatalities

"A study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medicine Association in September, 2000 reports that in the 20 years studied (1979 to 1998) "Pit-bull type dogs" and Rottweilers were involved in one half of approximately 300 dog bite related fatalities in the US [3]. Another study of American and Canadian dog bite related fatalities from September 1982 to November 2006 produced similar results, reporting that Pit bulls, Rottweilers, Presa Canarios and their mixes were responsible for 65% fatal dog attacks. [4] This study also noted: "Of the breeds most often involved in incidents of sufficient severity to be listed, pit bull terriers are noteworthy for attacking adults almost as frequently as children."

Wow.....where you shouting when you wrote this? I had to put my sunglasses on to read it. Personally I wouldn't give you tuppence for a Pitbull, but please excuse me if I say you are digging yourself in a hole. You have shifted your arguement to include other breeds of dog which are vaguely similar to the breed.

I haven't shifted anything, nor am I digging myself in a hole. You need to try to read with greater comprehension.

Also, "shouting" on the internet is when one types with all capital letters. Merely using the "bold" feature is not shouting, and is not considered poor etiquette. If it intimidates you in some way, I suggest you take up something safe like knitting.

There have been a few personal attacks in this thread. We need to keep it calm and civil. I love a good debate, but name calling needs to be saved for the playground. This might open back up in a few days after everyone cools off a little.

I understand both sides of the argument here, as I have good friends that breed Pits and Pit type breeds and I have a good friend that was maimed by a mis-trained Pit.

Remember folks, like people, dogs are only dangerous when raised and/or trained improperly.
