It is utterly amazing that entire cities can pass legislation to outlaw soft drinks or jay-walking, but pretty much everywhere it is still legal for people to own uncontrollable, mentally and emotionally unstable wild animals such as pit bulls, call them pets and allow them, usually unmuzzled and frequently unrestrained, within proximity to people, children, the elderly and other dogs, at which point they will, statistically speaking, often viciously attack totally unprovoked and inflict grievous injuries, permanent disfigurement, mutilations and horrific, painful deaths.
I can just hear all the pit bull owners out there right now barfing up all their same old tired, pathetic excuses: “My pitbull is a sweetheart, he’d never hurt anyone.” That and their penultimate buck-passer of an excuse: “It’s not the dog, it’s the owner”.
Yeah, that’s what ALL pit bull owners say, right up to the part where their dog attacks and maims or kills someone or something completely unprovoked and then they yap like an idiot about how they “never saw it coming”.
Excerpt from DogBites.org:
In the 11-year period of 2005 through 2015, canines killed 360 Americans. Pit bulls contributed to 64% (232) of these deaths. Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 76% of the total recorded deaths.

2015 U.S. Dog Bite Fatalities 2015 fatal dog attacks by breed
In 2015, five fatalities involved dogs from two or more different breeds, thus producing a “death credit” total of 41 rather than 34. Six dog breeds each contributed to one death, including: German shepherd-mix, golden retriever-mix, Rhodesian ridgeback-mix, lab-mix, husky and mixed-breed.
News Flash For ALL Pit Bull Owners: It’s NOT the owner dummy! IT’S THE DOG!
There are hundreds of millions of dogs in the world represented by hundreds of different dog breeds (of which all but a handful routinely kill EXACTLY ZERO PEOPLE EACH YEAR). Their owners can all give them the same varying levels of training and affection that pit bull owners give their dogs but guess what? In 2015 in the United States, 91% of the people killed by dogs were killed by only 2 breeds: pit bulls and rottweilers. Only pit bulls and a tiny handful of other vicious dog breeds are notorious for attacking anything and anyone completely unprovoked.
