Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Not sure where the data came from but this statistic is not a good advertisement for the breed.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/pets-animals/22-dog-breeds-that-have-attacked-the-most-people/ss-BBIJw3H?li=BBnb7Kz#image=18

Notice - that is slightly more than 1/3 of the attacks resulted in death.

I think a good writer would note whether they are referring to attacks on people or attacks on other animals, or both. I don't see where they distinguish this. Also, it is noted that this "study" was done using press accounts and we all know how biased press can be about what they choose to put out there and what they don't. Chihuahua still ranks number 1 for number of bites but if the press did a story about every time a Chihuahua bit someone that would be all we would ever hear about The difference is their bite amounts to a bad paper cut most of the time which is not newsworthy apparently. It's bad reporting for the sake of controversy that continues to fuel a lot of the issues with vicious breed stuff. When a little dog bites it's not that big of a deal. They aren't going to kill you unless it gets infected or something. When a big dog bites there's no ignoring it. Same goes though when a horse kicks. Yet we ban pitbulls across half the cities in the nation but you still see horses at every parade and stable a city has.

Huskies have a pretty serious black mark on them which is infant deaths.  There have been a relatively large amount of children that have been killed by huskies.  I'm talking few days old to few months old range.  Experienced owners too.  Well mannered dogs that did well with children.
I think it's most often a case of big cuddly happy dog that couldn't hurt someone if it tried being left alone with this toy sized human making funny movements and sounds.  The dog reacts to something, or tries to play with this human and the human isn't able to defend itself or sustain the dog's attention. In several instances it actually seems like the husky was trying to care for the infant, but in doing so injured the child.
People become complacent with their family pet and don't realize the threat they can pose.

Other than that, this number has to be injuries from breaking up dog fights and killing or injuring smaller animals.  Huskies just aren't aggressive by any measure.
