Dog attacks that result in someone dying used to be quite rare. Unfortunately, the numbers have been rising, along with the number of severe disabling and disfiguring attacks. With the growing popularity of keeping as pets the very same dogs that were bred for centuries as fighting dogs, the number of horrible attacks is rising. We publish here on this website every fatality we find out about, both as a memorial to those unfortunate people and in the hopes that this information can help make changes in our world to reduce the numbers of these severe attacks.
The counts and lists of deaths are not necessarily the only ones that occured. They are only the ones deadlydogattacks.com knows about. If you know of any other deaths that are not on the list (in ANY country, in ANY year), then please contact us.
If you have any questions about the website, please contact us.
