Pit Bull Statistics

Once again I am SORRY for my lack of posting. I have just started grad school and things have been really hectic! I have been taking tests and practicing and auditioning and stalking the Transformers 3 set which happened to be shooting in the ally right next to my building! Hopefully I can get back to posting regularly soon!

I have come across the site Don't Bully My Breed several times and I really like it. If you haven't already, go check it out. My favorite part is the statistics that can be found on the home page. These are completely copied from their site. Enjoy.

1.) About 40 people (children) per year die by drowning in 5-gallon water pails. A person, during their lifetime, is 16 times more likely to drown in a 5-gallon water pail than to be killed by a Pit Bull.
2.) Approximately 50 children in the US are killed every year by their cribs - 25 times the number of children and adults killed by Pit Bulls.
3.) Approximately 150 people are killed every year by falling coconuts. Therefore, you are more than 60 TIMES MORE LIKELY to be killed by a PALM TREE than a Pit Bull.
4.) Each year, 350 people drown in their bathtubs. You are 151 times more likely to be killed by your bathtub than you are by a Pit Bull.
5) Every year, more than 2,000 children in the U.S. are killed by their parents or guardians either through abuse or neglect. A child is more than 800 times more likely to be killed by their caretaker than by a Pit Bull.
6) It can be estimated that for every Pit Bull who kills, there are 10.5 MILLION that DON'T!

I hope you enjoyed these wonderful stats. Aren't they awesome?
