None of this changes the fact that dog attacks, including those by pitbulls are extremely rare statistically. Almost every kind of home and vehicle accident is much much more common. It is horrible for the people it happens to, but you can't legislate everything away. Use the existing laws and punish those responsible. I will not have the government tell me what kind of domestic dog I can have. I would fight that in every court known.

Murder is a term reserved for homicide of human beings.
The animals are being killed or euthanized.
It's a shame people aren't more responsible. If a little thought would go into the decision to own a pet prior to jumping in head first, a lot of this wouldn't happen.
People need to think about :
1. Proper nutrition
2. Vaccinations
3. Heartworm Preventives
4. Spay/neuter
5. Exercise requirements
6. Specific Breed Requirements
7. Dental Care
8. Time caged/ walked
9. Housing requirements
But people don,t. I was on the public transportation the other day sitting behind a moron who thought it would make her cat a better pet if she had one litter. Some people should not have children much less pets.

Please, look up the word genocide. In another post you alluded it to the holocaust, but please realize that genocide is a generalized term, and it didn't just happen in the holocaust.

animals take the blame for peoples stupidity.people who own dogs couldn't handle a goldfish.i have 1 dog,2 cats,all pound adopted.and i'm here to tell you it's a lot of work and can be expensive at times.if you aren't prepared to do the work or spend the money,then please don't get an animal.try to take care of a friends pet for a week or so,assuming all the work involved,then decide if you want one.you will be doing yourself and the pet a favor.

I hear that all the time, but about dogs.
It's amazing that these people will believe old wives tales over their Veterinarian, if they even go to one.

Cant deny, I and the wife just had a pit and a mut run up to us on our own property and we never had any idea that we had any in our neighborhood. Had one of them attacked the wife or my self I would have shot it on the spot. I know this is what you are trying to tell these people. They darn well know better but cant admit to the fact because the dog is their protector. It is also a known fact that mainly drugies and criminals have these dogs. That speaks for it self. The excuses they are using are pretty cheap.

No other breed at this point in time is more inbred, mistreated, abused, tormented, and deliberately made vicious by scumbag idiots either. Will your pitiful little pea brain implode when they move to another breed of dog? Don't be a complete reactionary fool all of your life. PEOPLE are the problem and idiots like you contribute to it by ignoring the cause.
