Whats your point?
Any animal large enough can injure or kill a person or similarly sized animal. You seem to be arguing that the chance is there, so the animal should not exist. I have seen a Labrador try to take a kids arm off. If the risk of something dangerous happening is reason enough for eradication then all dogs, nearly all farm animals, and most cats should cease to exist.
Pit Bulls attract a certain type of owner because of the stereotype and therefor the stereotype self fulfills, few could argue that point but that does not make the entire existence void.
I don't have a dog in this fight as I don't own a pit bull or particularly care to so I will leave it at that.
my thoughts exactly. We have pit. bad dogs, much like ill-behaved children are from lack of parenting. our dog sleeps at the foot of my sons bed between the door and Jr. He is a great dog, and Jr is a great kid. I would be lying to you if i didn't say i think both are good because there is no doubt whom the Alpha Dog is in our pack. Hint: he only has 2 legs.
