The whole breed doesn't need to be eradicated, but irresponsible owners do. I have three neighbors who own pit bulls they rescued and they are responsible with their pets. That is why this is news worthy, because it doesn't happen every day.

Pit bulls seem to like to live in certain areas of Ytown.

Or is that my imagination?

A study of U.S. dogbites from 1982 through 2011 indicates Pitbulls account for approximately 3% of the dog population but 59% of reported dog bites.

This is not a testament to the viciousness of the breed, but to the role man has bred this breed to for dog fights and absolute protection.

It may not happen every day but it happens way too often. Just the day before i read about officers shooting a pit after he put his owner in the hospital. Ya read that--his owner! And the dumber one is, the more he thinks he needs a pit bull. Something must be done.
