Animal Bite Statistics...

From G. Elaine Acker's Pet First Aid & Disaster Response Guilde - Revised First Addition

Approximately five million people are bitten by animals in the U.S. each year

Half of those bitten by animals are children

About a dozen people die each year from dog attacks

Half of all cat bites become infected

77 percent of biting dogs belong to victim's family or friend

61 percent of animal bites happen at home

I love all animals but cats in particular!
