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 Discussion

Age Group Ages 0-4 Ages 5-11 Ages12-20 Ages 21-54 55 (and >) Age Group Ages 0-4 Ages 5-11 Ages 0-11 Ages12-20 Ages 21-54 55 (and >)

% Victims 12% 24% 13% 42% 9% % Severe 84% 66% 72% Combined 57% 60% 63%

In a 6-month period (January to June 2009), 318 media reported pit bull attacks were recorded. 388 victims sustained bite injuries in these attacks and each incident produced just over 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 16 severed parts. 2% (6) of these victims suffered death by a fatal pit 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 12-20 group with 13% (51). The combination of two groups (0-4 and 5-11) 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 injury

by pit bulls was 0-4 with 84% followed by 5-11 with 66%. Property information was available in 310 incidents. The data shows that 68% (212) of the pit bull bites occurred off owner property and 32% (98) occurred on owner property. This is a reversal of non-breed specific dog bite data, which consistently reports that up to 70%[3] of bites occur on the dog owner's property. As documented in this 6-month report, as well as the DogsBite.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 victims included: Texas (38), Florida (34), Ohio (21), Pennsylvania and Virginia (each with 18) and New York (16). Counties with the highest 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).

Note: The Mid Year Results are preliminary and may be subject to revision at the end of 2009 when the final 12-month report is complete.

"% Severe" equals the percentage of severe injury victims within age group.
