    Why not go here and discuss it with them. We could argue about dogs in general ad naseum, and in fact it seems there is a dog thread here weekly that results in mostly the same members arguing the same sides. Dogs and laws on dogs aren't really our focus. However, the forum I linked to does have that as their focus.

    Also as per usual with dog threads this one is flirting with closure due to members getting testy with each other.

    i agree with carpet,,if you ban one breed of dog the next breed would be
    bull mastifs
    husky
    german shepard
    boston terriers
    chichiguagas

    and so on down the line,,as all these dogs have the potential too bite ,and bite hard,,

    sorry scott,,dont mean anything bad,,its just the banning of something thats really upsetting ,,
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion

    Pleae allow me to defend these 'vile animals'. I have known a lot of pitt bulls over the last 5 or 6 decades, and all but a very few were kind, loving, well mannered dogs that would hurt no one unless their owners kids were threatened. I have also know a few you were the spawn of Satan.

    The difference in these dogs is in who the owneres were. The good dogs came from nornal households and lived up to their family's standards. The bad ones were merely a refection of the character and moral values of their scumbag owners.

    But they are vile animals! Don't you people know that Pete the Pup MAULED AND MUTALATED every one of the Little Rascals?

    No really, just ask any one of the multitude of internet experts.

    Every situation is different.

    There are several "found Pit Bull" in the daily paper every week.

    This guy that shot the dog did the right thing.......approach the cat killer and see if it will respond to reason. If not, two to "stop the action".

    Wikipedia is a wonderful thing. You can instantly be incompetent in any area of expertise.
    Are you suggesting those incidents never occurred? Realizing the danger of pit bulls and exposing the harm they cause requires no special expertise. Ignoring the facts does not make them disappear.

    Which facts would that be? Some of these "attacks" are listed more than once, I would have wasted the time reading it before posting it as fact, but it does make the list bigger.

    But what does looking at one set of facts and ignoring the other cause?
    I don't believe anyone has said pits don't cause some trouble, what has been said is that the bigger problem is the people that allow these dogs to be a problem.

    I think I'm going to put myself in a "dog thread" posting time out for now.


    PS. SelfDefense you should really go read the site that the mods have posted, good information.

    Why do you put the word 'attacks' in quotes? Exactly how would you classify the 'loving interactions' between pit bulls and their victims?

    I take it you think those incidents never occurred, which is why you can so quickly dismiss the horrific results of pit bulls maiming and killing innocent people.

    These people aren't interested in anyone else's facts, opinions or experiences.

    No, I think you are pushing your self-righteous agenda.

    Believe me, I do understand the opposing view. The question is whether society gains from allowing this dangerous animal to be in close proximity to innocent people. Yes, there are good dogs, probably the majority of pit bulls. But that does not mitigate the severe and sometimes irreparable damage done by this specific breed repeatedly.

    It is a trade off between the danger posed by the animal and the love of a particular breed. Don't take this wrong, but I think the owners are selfish, placing their own enjoyment and loyalty over the welfare of the community.

    The fact that the list I posted is so long is testament to viciousness of the breed. But even if it were just one child that would be one attack too many.

    Just for some context as to why I hold my opinions on this subject, I have a friend whose face was mauled by a pit bull. After significant plastic surgery, she 'only' has a few horrible scars that will never fade. And this was a dog that she knew quite well and was always a loving pet.
