Prevalence of Dog Attacks (Updated)

For those who think that dog attacks aren't that common, just scan the news, specifically looking for reports on the subject.  You'll probably be suprised at the frequency in which these tragic events take place, and disturbed by the horrific details behind each dog attack.  Here is just a sampling:

Tucson, AZ - An 86-year-old man was walking his dog when two pit bulls, owned by Kevin Nelson, attacked both he and his dog.  Nearby neighbors came to the victim's rescue, before the police arrived.  An officer had to shoot and kill both dogs because the animals continued to present a threat.

Deerfield Beach, FL - A 13-year-old girl was attack by her pit bull.  The dog began acting erratic  and biting the girl.  Two neighbors started hitting the dog with bats, in an attempt to help the defenseless girl.  Finally, one neighbor shot and killed the dog, as it was biting the girl's face.

East Meadow, NY  - Shashi Sharma, a 62-year-old woman was excercising at a local school's track, when two pit bulls knocked her down and began mauling her, shredding her limbs.   According to reports on PIX11 in New York, the plastic surgeons who operated on Sharma, had never seen such severe injuries from a dog attack.

Pacifica, CA -Darla Napora, a 32-year-old pregnant woman was attacked and killed by her pit bull.

Acccording to Leonard Hill's website, a Philadelphia dog bite lawyer, pit bulls kill account for more dog-related deaths, then all other breads combined.
