REPORT:  Pit Bull Dog Bite Fatality Statistics
  • Of the 88 fatal dog attacks recorded, pit bull type dogs were responsible for 59% (52). This is equivalent to a pit bull killing a U.S. citizen every 21 days during this 3-year period.
  • The data also shows that pit bulls commit the vast majority of off-property attacks that result in death. Only 18% (16) of the attacks occurred off owner property, yet pit bulls were responsible for 81% (13).

These stats are taken out of context. Of course Pit attacks are more dangerous and death by them is higher than most other dogs. They have jaws like an alligator. When they want you, there's nothing you can do about it. But Pit attacks do not account for a significant amount of total dog attacks.
