Published by DogsBite.org
On September 15, 2000, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a report on fatal dog attacks (Breeds of dogs involved in fatal human attacks in the United States between 1979 and 1998). Of the five-author panel, two were human doctors and three were veterinarian (animal) specialists.

Why was the report more heavily weighted with veterinarian specialists instead of human medical specialists?

All five authors of the CDC report openly oppose breed-specific (pit bull) laws. Examples can be found in this PDF file.

Gail C. Golab, PhD, DVM
Randall Lockwood, PhD

The CDC's mission is to protect people (not dogs).

CDC pledges to the American people:

-To be a diligent steward of the funds entrusted to it.
-To provide an environment for intellectual and personal
growth and integrity.
-To base all public health decisions on the highest quality scientific data, openly and objectively derived.
-To place the benefits to society above the benefits to the institution.
-To treat all persons with dignity, honesty, and respect.

The enormous bias of this report is clear.

The CDC failed in its mission to protect future citizens from suffering the most horrific manner of death conceivable to man -- being attacked, bitten, and ripped apart by powerful pit bulls with strong jaws and a tenacious demeanor that would prevent the average person from being able to stop the attack.
