Report: Pit bulls responsible for most dog attacks/deaths in U.S. and Canada since 1982 | PennLive.com

There has been a rash of reported pit bull attacks in the midstate during the past month.

In June, an 82-year-old Palmyra man was seriously injured in an attack in Cornwall. Four days after, on June 20, a pit bull killed a dachshund and went after another dog in a Carlisle park. A little more than a week later, a pit bull was shot to death after it attempted to attack a police officer in North Middleton Townshp.

On July 4, a York woman who was mowing her grass was hospitalized after two pit bulls escaped their back yard and mauled her. The day after, another pit bull attack took place in York County, when police said a pit bull killed a dog and maimed its owner in Spring Garden Township.

Pit bull owners contend there is nothing to back up the general belief that the breed is more dangerous than others. They often blame owners for mishandling their pets following attacks.

Others contend that pit bulls, due to their breeding, are vicious killing machines that can’t be trusted no matter how tame they have been in the past.
