Dog Advocates Should Not Read This
Today's Deseret News reports a Provo police officer shot and killed two pit bulls. Good for him. Remember a couple of years ago when that little girl had her face torn off by someone's rottweiler in Liberty Park? If only that were an isolated case. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, 18 of the 27 dog- bite related fatalities in the U.S. in 1996- 1997 were thanks to rottweilers and pitt bulls. The remaining 9 fatalities were spread out over all the other breeds and mixes. I wonder what the figures for injuries are There is no right to own pit bulls and rottweilers.
