The bottom line: There are over 330 dog breeds which did not kill a single person last year. Of those few breeds that did, the vast majority of fatal attacks were committed by one particular type of dog, the pit bull.
This report covers the US and Canada, but the first fatal attack of 2016 served as a grim reminder that other countries have growing pit bull problems as well - including the UK, where pit bulls are ostensibly banned. However the loopholes and exemptions, along with selective enforcement, have effectively nullified the pit bull ban, thus facilitating the sort of horrific cases like the UK man who was attacked and mauled to death by his girlfriend's pit bull while suffering an epileptic seizure on new year's day. The full US report can be seen in the link below, which also provides some information on dog attacks in foreign countries.
