In the first six months of 2013, 100 percent of the people bitten by L.A. County Sheriff's Department canines were black or hispanic, according to the report from PARC, which serves as special counsel to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. “While the number of annual bites of Anglos, Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans has remained consistently low from 2004 through 2012,” the report states, “89 percent of the total bites in the same time period were of Latinos or Blacks. This 89 percent is an increase from a still troublesome 85 percent in the 1990s.”
