    Aww I missed this thread.

    But I am still gonna add my 2 cents worth. In the OP, it says 2 out of 32 dogs were pittys.

    That doesn't really help the anti BSL argument IMO. 6% of fatalities caused by one breed is pretty high really when you think about it. Try something else next time, or at least do the calculations first LOL

    How many were rottweilers? Are we banning them too? Maybe do your calculations before posting rubbish

    Dont be so angry, it's not good for your heart.

    We arent talking about rotties, we are talking about pitbulls so your angry wee post is moot.

    The fact is, trying to help the pitbulls case by posting that 6% of FATAL dog attacks are caused by pitbulls is not a good idea IMO. Why not post a statistic about somthing good they do, i.e. how often they pass temperament testing compared to popular family breeds.

    If you can't understand the point I am trying to make then I feel sorry for you.

    yes but how reliable is the data that makes up those statistics in the first place?

    Are the 2 dogs pedigree pitbulls? How do we know they're not lab x boxers? Did they do DNA tests on them to match against known examples of the breed? What other breeds are in the list - and how reliable was their breed id?

    Ayen was not killed by a pitbull but some cross breed. My dog is a cross breed, but she won't even kill a mouse. So why are we having hysterics about the breed?

    These are the best Australian dog bite stats I have access to - and they leave a lot of relevant information out.

    Dog Attack Reporting - Department of Local Government
    april june 2011 report summary
    150 attacks on people in NSW requiring medical treatment or a funeral. there's no separate list for the funerals.
    1,348 total reported attacks
    1,410,386 registered dogs - though it's not recorded how many of the dog attacks were by registered vs unregistered dogs.

    http://www.dlg.nsw.gov.au/dlg/dlghom...%202010-11.pdf

    These stats don't tell you how many attacks required medical attention for humans.
    205 dogs involved in some of the 1348 attacks were PTS.
    it's not stated whether these dogs that were PTS attacked people or livestock.

    35 attacks required police action
    5 required court action

    141 dangerous dog declarations (out of 1.5 million registered dogs)
    0 restricted dog declarations ie no pitbulls.

    By breed they don't separate out what kind of attack it was.
    The biggest attacker was "breed not identified" at 366
    the next biggest attacker was SBT also the most popular breed at 173
    then ACD, GSD, Amstaff, SBTx, Rotti, Sibe, Kelpie, Labrador.

    Pitbulls are not in the list at all.

    Most of the biters in the 10 ten are also in the top ten most popular registered breed of dog.

    This one DOG BITES isn't a bad tie in for a bit more background to the others as well

    I have seen some very aggressive and some un-trained naughty British Bulldogs.
    Cavaliers are the best family pets

    Did anyone notice the time period - 1989 to 1994

    Ie the dog popular with people who want scary dogs has changed since then.

    I suspect the location of most dog bites hasn't changed ie private home or backyard.

    I can't see anything that relates bite severity or frequency to breed. Am I missing something.
