Since you didn't answer this question previously, i thought i'd start a thread so you can't miss it.
Dog fight brews over tough laws | The AustralianOne of the few sources of national data is Monash University statistician Linda Watson, who has been collating figures from the states and territories for a PhD thesis on the effectiveness of regulation in preventing dog attacks.
Watson has counted at least 33 dog attack deaths in Australia since 1979, but apart from the dog that killed Ayen Chol, only one other culprit been described as a pit bull cross.
You continually support BSL based on the fact that "pitbulls" are killers and pose a big risk to the community. Can you please explain why we are only banning "pitbulls" when out of 33 dog attack deaths, only 2 in the last 32 years have been attributed to "pitbulls"?
Also, if you're still supporting BSL after that stat, what other breeds are we going to ban? Or do you think its better to make the owners responsible no matter what the breed?
