If it turns out that a pit bull was responsible, that would be the 28th out of 41 fatal dog attacks in the United States since 2010. That's 68% of all fatal attacks, or TWO people killed by pit bulls for every person killed by EVERY OTHER TYPE OF DOG. When rottweilers are added into the mix it shoots up to 80%. And if you go back to 2005, 26 out of the 31 fatal attacks (84%, not counting the one case of a pack of 11 unspecified breeds) on adults between the ages of 9 and 49 (i.e. ones strong and healthy enough to survive a dachshund attack) were pit bulls and/or rotts.
So yeah, you're right. On average, we can go 23 days at a time without someone being killed to death by a pit bull. Compared to things like cancer, or heart disease, or drunk driving, pit bulls are like taking vitamin C!
