TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Dogs in Arizona are biting more people and it's costing millions, according to a new study from State Farm.

It shows Arizona ranks 11th in the country for dog bite claims, including 105 reports just to State Farm in 2013.

State Farm paid out nearly $3 million for those claims, which can mean higher premiums.

That number went up from 2012 when Arizona was ranked 17th in this study with 72 bite claims.

The people bit most often were children, the elderly and postal carriers.

California had the most bite claims at nearly 450 last year.
