Also, in 80.50 percent of the cases, four or more of those situations listed were a factor, according to the National Canine Research Council.

A report by the editor of Animal People, which scoured media reports, found a total of 29 fatalities from pit bull and pit bull mix breeds in 2013. However, many argue that many dogs involved in attacks are incorrectly identified as pit bulls, and that media reports are not entirely reliable.

Two of fatalities from 2013 occurred in the state of Georgia. In one case, a 21-month-old died after a pack of family pit bulls attacked her, according to media reports. The other incident involved a two-year-old boy attacked by the family pit bull, according to media reports.
