Please review our comment policy.

  1. There are many many more in killed by pit bulls than listed here. My daughter, 4'10" was killed by 3 pits in January of 2014. There are very, very still ordinances around owning vicious dogs with fines of up to $10,000.00 per offense negligence. Many of the victims are children! Take a stand! If someone wants to own 1 or 15 of these dogs they better obey the ordinances or decide to pay the consequences. Respectfully, Pam Higdon

  2. Pamela, I am so sorry for your loss. Was your daughter Christina Bell, also known as Christina Burleson? I remember following the story last year. She will not be forgotten. Many of us here are trying to make things better.

  3. Pamela, I just saw this. We need to stop these dogs. No one should be owning them under any circumstances. Can you contact dogsbite about having your daughter's death put on the list if that is what you would like to do?

    I have always suspected dogsbite of being conservative with the data collected. I think the dog needs to be proven to be a pit bull. It makes sense from the standpoint that the data is solid, but deaths from pit bulls may be actually underrepresented.

    I am so sorry for your loss. This has got to be the most awful thing in the world for a parent. It makes me so angry that had to happen to your beautiful precious little girl.
