Colorado Dog Bites: July 2007 – July 2008

A comprehensive study of reported dog bites over a one year period in that state of CO yields some unsurprising results:

1. Most dogs don’t bite.
2. Any dog can bite, regardless of breed.
3. Loose dogs contribute significantly to bite stats.
4. Unsupervised children left with dogs are at risk for bites.

These are all common sense findings to my mind and further proof that targeting specific breeds for punishment will not reduce bite stats. Despite the findings of this study, Denver, CO maintains its ban on Pitbulls.
