3 thoughts on “Dramatic Decline in Attacks by Pit Bulls Since Pawtucket Adopted Pit Bull Ban in 2004

Please review our comment policy.

  1. This is proof in the pudding that BSL works for both humans and animals… if BSL is overturned and there is another serious or fatal pit bull mauling, the blood will be directly on the high court's hands

  2. After enforcement of the ban began in 2004, attacks inflicted by pit bulls on people and pets in the city quickly plunged into scarcity. Citizens and their pets enjoy this same scarcity of attacks today.

    "Just like any dog," "it's all how you raise them," "all dogs bite," – All of this "rebranding" has led to sky rocketing pain, suffering and death by pit bulls. Horrifying. I hope Pawtucket doesn't back down.

  3. Not only did they reduce attacks, they avoided the geometric increases of pit bull maulings experienced by other cities!
