To evaluate the numerous U.S. media reports on pit bull attacks, DogsBite.org is recording these incidents over the 12-month period of 2009. The Mid Year Results (January to June 2009) show 318 occurrences in which pit bulls and their mixes attacked U.S. citizens producing 388 victims. Of the injured victims, 64% (248) suffered severe bite injury and 36% (140) suffered minor bite injury.

The 20-page mid year report tracked 14 data aspects per incident including the location of the attack (date, city, county and state); the victim's name, age and gender; if the attack resulted in minor or severe injury; of severe injury victims, if the injury resulted in a severed part or fatal attack; if the incident occurred on or off the dog owner's property; and instances that involved chained pit bulls.

Please see full report for more details.

Summary and DiscussionAge Group% Severe
 
In a 6-month period (January to June 2009)
, 318 mediareported pit bull attacks were recorded. 388 victims sustainedbite injuries in these attacks and each incident produced justover one bite victim (1.2 per incident). Of the injured victims,64% (248) suffered severe bite injury
[1]
and 36% (140)suffered minor bite injury. Of the severely injured victims, 4%(10) suffered the loss of one or more body parts totaling 16severed parts. 2% (6) of these victims suffered death by a fatalpit bull mauling.
[2]
The 21-54 age group suffered the most pit bull bites 42%(163), followed by the 5-11 group with 24% (94) and the 12-20group with 13% (51). The combination of two groups (0-4 and5-11) with 36% still incurred fewer bites than the 21-54 group.Yet the combined 0-11 group suffered a higher percentage of severe injury, 72%, than the 21-54 group, which suffered 60%.The group that incurred the highest rate of severe injuryby pit bulls was 0-4 with 84% followed by 5-11 with 66%.Property information was available in 310 incidents. The datashows that 68% (212) of the pit bull bites occurred off owner property and 32% (98) occurred on owner property. This is areversal of non-breed specific dog bite data, which consistentlyreports that up to 70%
[3]
of bites occur on the dog owner'sproperty. As documented in this 6-month report, as well as theDogsBite.org 3-year fatality study, pit bulls escape owner property and inflict bites at a substantially higher rate than other dog breeds.States with the highest number of pit bull attack victimsincluded: Texas (38), Florida (34), Ohio (21), Pennsylvania andVirginia (each with 18) and New York (16). Counties with thehighest number of victims included: Allegheny, PA (8), Essex,MA and Dallas, TX (each with 7) and Cook, IL, Marion, IN,Clark, NV and Salt Lake, UT (each with 6).
