#BSLbytes 8

Posted by Chantelle Mackney on

Dog bite-related fatalities are often used in research into dog aggression. These fatalities are exceedingly rare but easiest to gather data on (not all dog bites are consistently reported, but deaths are). Although it can be difficult to confirm the breed(s) of dog involved in an attack, the little information we have suggests that a variety of breeds and mixes are responsible for serious dog attacks.

Curious about the numbers in Canada? Chicobandito.com lists the 43 known fatalities that have occurred over the last 34 years and the breeds of dogs thought to be involved. "Pit bull" type dogs barely make an appearance.
