In a 6-month period
(January to June 2009), 194 mediareports were recorded that involved pit bulls and their mixes shotfor public safety reasons by U.S. law enforcement officers andcitizens. Of the total number of incidents, 362 bullets were firedand 173 pit bulls were killed. 84 people suffered pit bull bite injuryin these incidents as well. Of these victims, 82% (69) werecitizens and 18% (15) were law enforcement officers. In two of hese occurrences, the bite injury resulted in death including:Leonard Lovejoy Jr., 11-months old (Eastpointe, MI) and IzaiahGregory Cox, 7-months old (San Antonio, TX). Eight peoplesuffered bullet injury in these incidents. Of these victims, 75% (6)were citizens and 25% (2) were law enforcement officers.States with the highest number of shootings included: Texas(22), California (17), Florida (15), Tennessee (13) and Ohio (12).The findings also show that firearm intervention may haveprevented at least five deaths by a pit bull mauling. These victimsincluded: Duane Vanlanham, 48 (Buena Vista Township, MI),Derrick Benton, 25 (Jeffersonville, KY) and Jane Doe, 13(Gallipolis, OH). In the life altering attacks involving ShayleeCrosson, 3 (Bonham, TX) and Faith Guelde, 8 (Lookout Mountain,GA), each offending pit bull was reportedly dead prior toauthorities arriving. Though it is unknown if these pit bulls werekilled by a firearm, the intervention with deadly weaponry is near certain.
