Each day there are approximately 1,000 people that require treatment for a dog bite. A study shared by DogsBite.org shows that molosser dogs are among the most dangerous breed and are responsible for a great majority of dog bite attacks.
The Molosser breed of dogs includes pit bulls, rottweilers, presa canaries, cane corsos, mastiffs, dogo argentines, and fila brasieros. These breeds are responsible for 79-percent of dog attacks that result in harm to the body, and 69-percent of attacks that result in fatality.
Pit bulls are the Molosser dogs that cause most of the attacks. They have been found to attack both adults and children at the same frequency and they can maim or kill someone if the attack occurs when the dog is particularly agitated.
Pit bulls account for only 4.4% of the population, yet between 1982 and 2012, they’ve caused bodily harm to 2,235 individuals, maimed 1,268 victims, and caused 233 deaths.
