Save the Dogs, Punish the People

For those who would consider exterminating pit bulls, they should consider the possibility the worst acts perpetrated by pit bulls are induced by their owners. These owners, in turn, will not stop their activities because of any legislation. So the dog is paying a horrific penalty for an owner who would do the same to another dog or another breed. Perhaps consider helping pit bulls, sheltering them from the outrageous behavior of the humans in their lives.

You can demonize them all you want. The fact is, they aren't devil dogs. Their owners, on the other hand. . . . Save the pit bulls.

I really appreciate the fair media attention you gave them.
