Furthermore, the combination of pit bulls, rottweilers, their close mixes, and wolf hybrids are responsible for 68 percent of fatalities and 77 percent of attacks that cause bodily harm.

I can't prove it, but I'm willing to bet that the owners of pit bulls are also more dangerous than your average citizen. You can tell by their tattoos.

I say we outlaw pit bulls and put the others on notice.
This is 2012....Why are you using such old reports??

Actually yes they can, I see it every time there's an event that allows dogs. People let their dog call the shots, rather than take control of the situation.

There are no bad dogs. Just bad owners.

Responsible Pit Bull owners, train their dogs.
Do not let their dogs run wild.
Do not train their dogs to fight.
Pit Bulls are sweet dogs. They are not born vicious.
Ever met a vicious puppy? No.

There must be a heck of a lot of irresponsible pit bull owners then, because I hardly ever hear of german shepherd attacks or other dogs comparable in size, it seems pit bulls are the real killers, maulers.
