In the United States, there are a substantial number of people attacked and bitten by dogs and other animals, causing injury, medical expenses, pain and suffering. Some of these injuries are permanent, and cause years of rehabilitation and recovery. Some animal attacks even result in death.
One of the most common types of animal attacks is the result of dog bites. Approximately 5 million people in the United States are bitten by dogs every year. Certain beeds of dog are more aggressive and dangerous than others, including the German Shepherd, Pit Bull, Rottweiler, Doberman Pincher and Chow-Husky. Pit bulls are involved in approximately a third of human dog-bite related fatalities, and pit bull and Rottweilers account for 67% of all dog bites in the United States.
