One circumstance deserves mention. Human 'bites' are not uncommon as a result of one person punching another in the mouth. The injury thus obtained frequently involves penetration into the hitters metacarpo-phalangeal joints, sometimes accompanied by fractures. Any contaminated injury involving a joint, whether it be canine, human or other, is more serious. Infection here is harder for the immune system to access and complications are disabling. This type of injury is overwhelmingly associated with human teeth rather than dog bites and largely is responsible for the human bites' reputation.
