Your anxiety levels make you a prime target for a canine attack.
Dog bite victims tend to be people who suffer from mental anxiety.
Unfortunately, we have no reliable data on the frequency or severity of dog attacks.
The reported rate of dog bites to hospitals is 740 per 100,000 [people], but the reported rate from the poll is 1,873 per 100,000.
It was found that the lifetime risk of being bitten was nearly two times higher for males than for women.
About half of all dog bites happen to people who have never encountered a dog before, and nearly half of all dog bites happen to children.
Our results indicate that the likelihood of having been bitten decreases with decreasing levels of anxiety, irritability, and depression.
