A dog bite safety and advocacy organization released a study of fatal dog bite attacks in the United States from 2006-08.It was little surprise that pit bulls, rottweilers, and bulldogs accounted for 77% of fatal dog bite attacks. The one surprising statistic contained in the study was that adults were more frquently victims than children. The conventional wisdom is that childrfen would have been more ferquent victims of dog bite attacks because of their smaller size and inexperience inrecognizing which dogs and/or dog behaviors represented threats to their safety. Of all age groups, seniors citizens were the victims of fatal dog bite attacks most ferquently.Almost half of all fatal dog bite attacks (44%) involved multiple dogs. From this, it appears that pack behavior of dogs is an important factor in the severity of the dog bite attacks.
