On May 26, 2007, 71-year-old Carshena Benjamin of Collier County, Florida, was killed by put bulls. The death was not attributed to dogs, however, because the criminal investigation was quietly terminated later in the year. (For the interesting and disheartening story, click here.)
This news brings the 2007 death count to 32 for the USA. The main page of Dog Bite Law and several other pages will be updated with this information in mid-April. I am currently out of state for a dog bite trial.
