And I kinda am partial to this result of a form of BSL. Remember that California is an anti-bsl states except for mandatory spay/neuter of certain breeds. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010…
A whopping 45% drop in crime and the credit is given to regulating certain breeds aka pit bulls. Is this the solution to the crime problem?
Let's see how this stacks against Ms. Carrigan's progaganda. This study was at a children's hospital. http://journals.lww.com/plasreconsurg/Abst…
More than 30 different offending breeds were documented in the medical records. The most common breeds included pit bull terriers (50.9 percent), Rottweilers (8.9 percent), and mixed breeds of the two aforementioned breeds (6 percent).
So 27 other breeds were left with 35% of these attacks. That's a little over 1% per other breed compared to almost 51% for pits. Get the message.
Conclusions: Attacks by pit bulls are associated with higher morbidity rates, higher hospital charges, and a higher risk of death than are attacks by other breeds of dogs. Strict regulation of pit bulls may substantially reduce the US mortality rates related to dog bites.
