Your dog is out of control! You better fix that problem before I do.
And to all you pit bull lovers .... breeds are bred for certain reasons. Pit bulls were bred for farm work and to fight. I don't think you can ever be truly sure your dog is one of the "nice" ones. Instinct is a powerful thing.
A study examining a two-year period by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that, "during 1997 and 1998, at least 27 people died of dog bite attacks (18 in 1997 and 9 in 1998). At least 25 breeds of dogs have been involved in 238 human DBRF (dog bite related fatalities) during the past 20 years. Pit bull-type dogs and Rottweilers" [the study places both breeds into one category] "...were involved in more than half of these deaths." Additionally, the article concluded: "Although fatal attacks on humans appear to be a breed-specific problem (pit bull-type dogs and Rottweilers), other breeds may bite and cause fatalities at higher rates."
