Dog bites are almost twice as common among urban Canadians as rural ones, according to a new study

Laura Atwood, public relations coordinator for Anchorage Animal Care and Control, demonstrates how to touch a dog to whom a person has just been introduced by petting Riley, a mixed-breed dog, below its chin. from the University of Guelph found that dog bites are more common among people who live in urban areas compared to those living in the country.

Experts found that six per cent of households in rural areas had at least one person bitten by a dog in the previous year, versus nearly 11 per cent of urban households. Jan Sargeant, who conducted the study, says the majority of bites came from unleashed dogs, and a high percentage of the bites were from dogs that were not vaccinated against rabies.

She added, “When you know these things, you can target messages more specifically. The more specifically you can target to people’s individual situation, the more likely it is to resonate with them and the more likely you are to affect some change.”after she and another woman were bitten by what police described as a “large dog” running loose in a Calgary neighbourhood. Bylaw officers later impounded the dog.from a Brampton, Ont.

Danielle Julien, an epidemiology student who also worked on the study, says that the research was set out to examine the difference between urban and rural communities when it comes to numbers of dogs, dog ownership dynamics and human exposure to dog bites.

No fuckin shit, who pays for these studies?

More people, more dogs, more bites!

rural dogs behave better, have lots of space for exercise and know that they are a dog and are not humanize.

Doesn't surprise me

Plus dogs out number children!

Time to start tracking and maybe do something about it. People have a right to feels safe. If it was any other animal this would never be tolerated. Control your dogs people.

Even dogs hate Citiots

So for anyone looking for news, remember the US has a treaty with Taiwan, and the aggressor is steralizing people based on religious ideology nzherald

Who paid for this study? It's common sense more people around dog = more bites.

Human trafficking?
