MOD WARNING - RULE 9 Although graphic images are a powerful tool for demonstrating the point that some pit bulls can be exceedingly dangerous, this moderation staff is asking your cooperation in limiting the unwarranted exposure to horrific images. Several images were deleted and several were retained based solely on my discretion. If you want the image to remain, please contain a link to the image and not the image itself. Thanks for your cooperation - Lee S Unless you're in the military or law enforcement, I see no damn good reason a person should be able to own a pit bull. Fact: Pit bulls make up only 6% of the dog population, but they're responsible for 68% of dog attacks and 52% of dog-related deaths since 1982. They are the most aggressive and defensive breeds by nature, plus they're stronger than your average dog. They have historically been used for hunting, war, and, yes, fighting. The excuse of "bad owners" doesn't cut it - what ? Do you really believe that time after time after time it just happens to be the worst possible owners tend to buy pits ? Nonsense. The fact is, I've heard of too many cases where "mild mannered" pits attack other dogs when on the loose. Your argument is a dog that won't hunt. Unlike an AR-15, have a mind of their own and can turn on even the owner. When I take my dog to the dog park or on a walk, the reason I'm always armed is because of pit bulls. I've had labs, collies, and other breeds run towards my vizsla, but the only time she literally almost jumped into my arms was when a pit bull approached her. Thankfully the owner called it back.
