Toronto, Ontario - Since the Dog Owners' Liability Act kicked in on Aug. 29, 2005, which bans new pit bulls, reports of bites by pit bull type dogs have dropped dramatically. In 2004, there were 130 reports of pit bull bites. The numbers decreased greatly in subsequent years: 71 in 2005; 53 in 2006; and 44 in 2007.

But... breed bans never work!

Gotta wonder how many lifeflights this has prevented?

A total of 486 bites were recorded in 2005. That number fell generally in the six years following, to 379 in 2010.

Bites in Toronto blamed on the four affected breeds fell sharply, from 71 in 2005 to only six in 2010. This accounts for most of the reduction in total bites.
