I'm going to start this off by saying to Vicki that it's a horrible thing that happened and my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
Now, regarding the above comment, you may have never heard a good story regarding pit bulls, but do you think it's possible that people sensationalize the pit bull because of their reputation as a mean breed, so you only hear the negative stories? Of course, Michael Vicks story is out now so I know it doesn't help the breed any but I'm sure that not all pit bulls are cold blooded killers. I am a true believer that it has a lot to do with bloodlines and ownership but that could be true with any breed. Unfortunately it's the rottweilers, pit bulls and dobermans that have the reputation.

Gotta add my two cents...I'm also a dog lover but I don't have any experience with Pits. Had a Rottweiler for 11 years named Samson but had to put him to sleep in May due to various health problems. He was the biggest baby! The most loving, sweetest dog I've ever had. And if children were near, he became very protective of them and would follow them everywhere as if keeping an eye on them. He was such a gentle old man.

From this story to the elderly handicapped woman attacked in her own home this week after two pit bulls broke into the house, to the plethora of other stories, it IS the dog, not JUST the owner.

Let the pit bull apologists come running to this thread to defend these disgusting beasts, now....

There, I said it.
kmway, I feel that this species should be banned but I dont think they should all be killed off. I feel that this is a dangerous breed but I heard of nice loving pits as well. It mostly about the owner who raise them. That story is crazy though about the pits breaking into a home.

Businessperson, who determines that human life is more valuable than an animal. This is the problem with man now-a-days. We think we are god and we play god. I honestly feel that the same way they control animal populations, they should control human populations as well because one day we will use up all the natural resources with our oversized families, and unnecessary lavish lifestyles. We are the biggest threat on the planet but we dont even know it. So a human life is the same as an animal life. We are all living creatures of the planet

That is the weirdest post yet. So you want to neuter human males? HAHA, ok.

But yeah, I was exaggerating in that post I made about killing them off. I actually believe in banning, too.

Man has gotten out of hand with pit bull breeding so there should be a national pit bull ban. There are some good pitbull owners but there is a price to pay

I grew up around livestock, and many, many dogs will attack and kill goats, sheep, etc. Unlike coyotes, the dogs run through and injure many animals, hamstringing them, etc. This didn't happen because it was a pit, and just because a dog will kill livestock (sounds like a very normal thing for a dog to do, when you think about it) does not mean it will turn on a human. Whenever we found dogs attacking our livestock (cows, horses, sheep, etc) we would just shoot them. Sometimes we would tell the owner (if we knew who it was) what happened, and let them know that if the dog came back we would have no choice but to shoot it. When a dog is not raised around livestock, they often will chase them and then injure them because of instinct and excitement. Pits are not all bad, they are a terrier, but extremely strong, which coupled with that terrier personality makes them formidable and dog aggressive. We all know that they have attracted "the wrong crowd" because of this, much like dobes, rotts, etc did. In truth the only dogs I have been attacked by are a chow chow, a sharpei, a german shepherd and a great pyranees. The pyranees was huge and scary, but he was using an inhibited bite, so I took it in stride. The chow and sharpei were different stories altogether though!
