Statistics collected by the City of Edmonton reveal that American Staffordshire terriers — one of several breeds that are commonly known as pit bulls  were responsible for nearly 30 % of all reported fatal dog-on-dog attacks in the city between January 2013 and September 2017.

Sara Ward says she has the proof in black and white that pit bulls should be muzzled in Edmonton.Ward wants the city to bring back breed-specific legislation to put restrictions on pit bulls.

City statistics show that American Staffordshire terriers were responsible for 23 of the 81 fatal attacks reported in the past five years, while a variety of more than a dozen other breeds were responsible for the rest.
