As a retired dairy farmer, I see a big similarity between owners of pit bulls and owners of bulls.

My dad used to say..........." the only tame bull hangs in a butcher shop"

I knew many farmers who proclaimed THEIR bull was tame and thus totally different from rowdy bulls. Many a farmer got maimed or killed by their " tame " bull.

I believe no bull should be trusted to the point of precautions forgotten.

Most folks wouldn't know what a pitbull is even if it bit them in the butt.

(Stats are weird too ... average time is over 28 minutes?! Who is spending 28 minutes on that page?)

I would agree with you. However, I would trust that parents would be a bit more mindful.

They also stacked it full of pictures of breeds that 90% of Americans will never see in their lifetime.

Man couldn't afford to take care of his pit bull. Read what the a**hole did to the dog. And got off with only a year in jail!

Man pleads guilty to animal cruelty, hanging dog in backyard

As a dog owner, that is sad to read about an irresponsible person.

I have a solution. There are a lot of hungry people in North Korea and China who eat dog and consider it a delicacy. Why can't we send the thousands of pit bulls in US shelters over there to be eaten? It would solve two big problems (our pit bulls and their hunger), and it would improve relations between us and North Korea so that we might not even need drunken Dennis Rodman as our ambassador. Haven't charities who specialize in feeding the hungry looked into this, and if not, why not?
