Fatalities By Dogs Extremely Rare
I am still waiting for the reactionary borough council to make a move regarding the recent attack by 3 dogs in Pottstown (read it here). But truth be told, you are at greater risk of being killed by a lawn mower than a dog. Infant deaths are more likely to happen from plastic buckets than from dogs. And, sadly, children are more likely to be hurt or killed by a parent or guardian than by a dog. This is not to say there aren't dangerous dogs out there. But let's use our heads and not make knee-jerk reactions.
