After the dogs let go of the horse, they turned their attention to nearby people.


hmmm...what about animal aggression doesn't equal human aggression??

“In the Lockwood &Rindy study(1987), 42 percent of pit bull attacks involved dogs that were fenced, chained or inside prior to the incident. Another 14% involved dogs jumping fences or breaking chains. For bites involving other breeds, 26.7 were similiarly restrained, BUT ONLY 1% involved breaking restraint.”



“In the Pit Bull incidents, 58% of the victims were walking or had no interaction with the dog prior to the attack, 19.8 were bitten coming to the aid of a person or animal that had been attacked, 7.9% were playing with the animal and 5 % were provoking the animal. In the cases involving other breeds 48.4 percent involved no direct interaction, 27.4 play and 1.6% provocation.”
