0.00004716 percent of the Pit Bull population involved in fatal attacks

I am stealing this from the ever popular Don't Bully My Breed, Inc. website....

"Although there are no accurate or even near accurate census records for dogs in the U.S., in some populations pit bulls are estimated to comprise some 30-40% of the dog population, making it by FAR the most popular breed. Considering that there are an estimated 53,000,000 dogs in the U.S., and assuming that pit bulls make up 20% of that population, there would be approximately 10,600,000 pit bulls in our society. In 1998, five pit bulls were involved in 2 fatal attacks."

That is roughly ONE dog out of 2,120,000 - or .00004716 percent of the pit bull Population.
