As I have indicated on my Pit Bull main webpage on this website, the Pit bulls are a particularly dangerous breed namely because they have extremely powerful jaws for dogs their size. You add to the fact that they have extreme neck muscles and they almost nearly a resemble a walking jaw with short stocky legs. In fact, I have said, if you buy a Pit Bull as a family pet, it is almost like putting a shark in your family swimming pool!
Now, these jaws can easily crush hard tissue like human bone and inflict severe and significant long-term tissue damage – however, these powerful dogs can also tear and rip flesh and soft tissue beyond hope of repair or healing – just research some of the pictures you can find on the internet for a few examples of this ripping type biting pit bulls are famous for when they attack. The harm these animals can cause is not limited to physical trauma or injuries; very often Pit Bull victims of Pit Bull attacks carry psychological scars that last a lifetime. Again, it is due to the “way” the Pit Bull attacks – they twist and turn their heads while biting down with extreme force. I liken it to a crocodile attack!
