Dog Bite Statistics
One may be surprised at how many people are attacked by dogs in a single year nationwide. The Centers for Disease Control reports that about 4.5 million people are attacked and over 800,000 are treated for injuries. In California 5 people were killed in dog attacks in 2013. Sadly, by far the majority of people who are injured or killed in dog attacks are children ages 5-9. This may be due to the innate curiosity of children in that age group. It may also be attributable to their relatively small stature.
