Not sure I get your point, Wayne. (?)
The point is there is no unconditional love by animals. They will eat their own young/siblings/species.
When an animal loves you, it loves you unconditionally - no matter what.
Forgives without question. Loyal to the end. The love 'that would hurl itself against hopeless odds' in defence of its master.
Some, yes, but not a general statement of truth by any means. http://dogbitelaw.com/dog-bite-statisti ... rimer.html
The number of victims
The most recent USA survey of dog bites, conducted by CDC researchers and based on data collected during 2001-2003, concluded that dogs bite 4.5 million Americans per year (1.5% of the entire population). Sacks JJ, Kresnow M. Dog bites: still a problem? Injury Prevention 2008 Oct;14(5):296-301.
Almost 800,000 bites per year -- one out of every 6 -- are serious enough to require medical attention. (Weiss HB, Friedman D, Coben JH. Incidence of dog bite injuries treated in emergency departments. JAMA 1998;279:51-53.)
Dog bites send nearly 368,000 victims to hospital emergency departments per year (1,008 per day). Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Nonfatal Dog Bite–Related Injuries Treated in Hospital Emergency Departments — United States, 2001, MMWR 2003;52:605-610. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report is published by the CDC.
Dogs bite family and friends
The vast majority of biting dogs (77%) belong to the victim's family or a friend.
