Data on Dog Attacks – Let's make logical decisions to ensure public safety

Information on Dog Attacks

I applaud our commission for taking steps in the right direction. This
is something that needs to be addressed.

Of all 3,655 Dog-Attack Fatalities / Maimings since 1982; 2,394 were attacks by Pit-Bulls or close mixes.

3,064 were by large molosser breeds including: Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Presa
Canarios, Cane Corsos, mastiffs, Dogo Argentinos, Fila Brasieros, and their mixes.

Why don't you look at the data. Let's not draw favor for our emotions instead of public safety, and what consequences our dangerous decisions have on our neighbors.

Here is the DATA:

Please try to be logical. Let's not let the next Dog-Attack be on one our children.

Dump the dogs. Get a cat, keep it inside. Cats have more class. If they don't like you, they ignore you or leave. A dog tries to remove your leg.

We already elected a big mutt 3 years ago. Hasn't worked out, behaves poorly on a regular basis. Too late for training, it insists on soiling wherever it wants.
