A pitbull dog attack just happened and you didn’t even know? Learn how to find them.
Most of us are always flabbergasted when we come to know later on, if so, of a pitbull dog attack, or from any other dangerous dog, that happened in an area very close to us, like our neighborhood, community or city.
One way to know what is going on, specially about serious events that can affect our safety and well being, is to learn “how to be informed” on them.
You can do that, easily and for free, by using Google. Just watch the video and you will see how.
Basically speaking, just search by using the News section, not the Web one. Just type in your keywords, like “pitbull dog attack,” and look for the results.
A pitbull dog attack is constantly under-reported
You will find that the number of pitbull dog attacks are much, much greater then you what you heard from the mainstream media.
Many news organizations do not want to lose advertisers in the pet industry lobby, regardless if the dogs are regular or dangerous ones.
So, never think that what you saw on your local TV news channel is all that happened in your area.
Expand your search into other dogs bitings, killings, maulings…
You may alternatively search for ANY DOG attacks, dog bite, dog killed, and dog mauls.. as the breed is left out of the news article 99 percent of the time.
More than 99% of dogs attacks with overly serious and even fatal consequences were mostly done by pit bulls but news reporter just said it was “dog”.
As said above, you may add any specifics you want:
- Your community
- Your city
- Your state
- Your country
- Other languages
- A specific year or period of time
- A dog breed other than pit bulls (remember: all dogs can bite, all dogs can attack, not just pit bulls).
Just use your creativity and focus on what you really want to find.
