Time To Ban Pitbulls

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (1)
Well, if the soccer moms are so scared of guns, shouldn't they know that pitbulls kill more people than all the other dog breeds put together? One hundred fifty-one Americans in an eight-year period, from 2005 to 2012.

Add in Rottweillers and that's 73 percent of human deaths.

Ban 'em! They're dangerous. And at the 76th most common dog breed, pitbulls, aka, thug dog, should not be defended. Those who do probably, as Roissy writes, likely defend open borders, rap music, and non-racial stop and frisking.

The German Shepherd does deserve defense, as it's the second most common breed and does much less mayhem and death.

HT: the Audacious Epigone
In the 8-year period from 2005 to 2012, pit bulls killed 151 Americans and accounted for 60% of the total recorded deaths (251). Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers accounted for 73% of these deaths.

On the assumption that the above isn't entirely sarcasm, and in hopes of injecting some better links for research...

For dog bite fatalities (or dog bite stats in general)dogsbite.org has a horrible rep for actually doing RESEARCH into the dogs in question. I'd highly recommend here instead: http://nationalcanineresearchcouncil.com/dogbites/dog-bite-related-fatalities/

I'd also suggest reading the comments here: http://yesbiscuit.wordpress.com/2013/04/08/discussion-are-we-blinding-ourselves-to-dangerous-dog-behavior-in-bully-breeds/ there are the usual amount of idiots posting, but the links out that I've clicked on are good....

And add the note that although a quite large number of dogs that go into shelters end up labeled "pitbull" or "pit mix" there have been a fairly large number of cases where the owner has shown up to retrieve their straying dog, and been able to prove the dog is nothing such (its like "lab cross" which is the other really common label). Heck, there was even a case a while back of a purebred, papered, Lab being labeled as a pit.....
