6 thoughts on “Mid Year Results: U.S. Police and Citizen Shootings of Pit Bulls 2009

  1. Thank you DBO…The Pit Bull problem is not only a mauling issue, but a law enforcement and fiscal one as well.

    This criminal breed stewardship of the pit bull community must cost a fortune!

  2. That's 567 shooting incidents and 492 Pit Bulls killed during beserking episodes by the good citizenry/law enforcement in 18 months!

    But…but…It's the Cocker Spaniels!

  3. You never cease to amaze me with these facts. It's incredible that people stay in denial about these dogs.

  4. Oh, the cockers ARE biting and killing and maiming and being shot by police in even greater numbers than pit bulls — it's just that the media covers ALL THOSE incicdents up because they hate pit bulls and love those killer cockers. And law enforcement covers it all up, too, cuz they hate those deadly cockers, and those who are maimed by cockers and whose loved ones are killed by cockers don't know a cocker from a pit bull, so they report it as a pit bull, because the media has brainwashed them!

    Pardon me….I was just channeling a pit nutter….

  5. These results show a mere fraction of the actual number of shooting incidents involving dangerous pit bulls. We will be gathering data to highlight this for the final year end report.
