I have covered a number of pitbull attacks.
One consistent theme is just how terrible they are and how often the result in amputation or multiple amputations.
A graphic video from Columbia shows why this is the case.
The bite force of a pitbull is about 240 PSI, which is enough to crush cortical bone.
More than that, the issue is how the pitbull attacks.
The way the pitbull latches on and thrashes about tears muscle from bone and shreds the muscle.
The damage is so severe that there is no way to repair the degloved tissue and amputation is the only recourse.
Other dogs bite.
Pitbulls destroy soft tissue.
This is why I continue to hammer this point.
It’s the same reason I do repeated posts on one punch fatalities.
The enormity of a pitbull attack must be understood and the threat taken seriously.
