  1. The new site is a great addition and a valuable resource!

    The accelerating rate of killings is atrocious.

    Thank you to everyone who did the research

  2. I looked for a pit bull fatality I’m familiar with, but can’t find a record for it. I tried a Google search and an archive search of the Marin Independent Journal. I’m estimating this was in ’88 or ’89, when Rescue 50, (San Rafael Fire Paramedics,) transported a young boy to Kaiser Terra Linda ER in traumatic arrest, following an attack by the family’s pit bull in San Rafael’s Lincoln Ave. area. I can’t recall the particular medics, but I do recall the investigating coroner was Ken Holmes, San Rafael PD was present, and patient arrival was mid to late morning. I can’t think of a way to find an online reference for this incident.

  3. 308 American Pit Bull DBRFs documented as of 11/12/2011….despite never being bred to be human aggressive.

    Yeah…That's the ticket!
