Maybe the numbers don't lie, but you'll have to furnish the data to back up your claim.
Of the 88 fatal dog attacks recorded by DogsBite.org, 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).
Wrap your brain around that statistic.
How many of those were pure breeds, how many were crosses, how many were misidentified?
Don't know, and don't care. They should be outlawed. They are mentally deranged violent killers. ~SheopleNation

Actually, that's not true. When I was young, I was attacked by a Golden at a park. It just ran up and bit me in the face. I have a Doberman right now that has never bit me or anyone else.
Having a "Bully breed" =/= having that dog "Randomly attack".

Agreed, some folks should not own dogs
Dogs should Never be left unsupervised with children or Anyone who cannot maintain leadership over the dog.

One couple had a pet python that ate their 3 year old.
Get this...the snake was the child's babysitter.
Animals go by instinct and should never be left alone with
children of any age.

Looks like a cool dog, like your avatar too. Personally if someone tried to come and take my dog, I'd fight them to the death. You'd have to kill me before I'd let you take him.

I've even had Japanese Akitas and Rottweilers and German Shepherds come out and attack my Pitbull, when my Pitbull was the one on a leash, and minding its own business, and the other dog was the aggressive one.
Originally posted by getreadyalreadyYip-yip dogs just really baffle me. I can't understand why anyone would want one? I have a friend with a weiny dog, and I make fun of him all the time. He is a grown man, with a weiny dog? His house got broken into last summer, he lost some guns, a big screen and a laptop, but his weiny dog was in her bed waiting when he got home! Worthless.
Originally posted by Believer101Rarely? Are you kidding me? Do a simple Google search on Golden Retrievers and Poodles attacking. There are a lot.
It just doesn't get reported as much because people like you believe those dogs are angels.

Exactly so its the people that have the problem not the dog.
You want to kill the dogs, because they're doing what their owners trained them???? How bout take out the owners and you solve the problem.
YOU = EPIC FAIL.
Start making owners accountable for their dogs, you make them get qualified to own a dog like this, problem goes away. But good for you, if you think killing them all is a realistic idea , as well as a solution.
Just goes to show how much of a sheep you are.
I bet every time you look at a statistic you take it face value and are too lazy to actually analyze it and find what its trying to tell you.
