Because improperly raised dogs can do such great damage; and a lot of them ARE improperly raised. Neuter them all and let the breed die out. This way no one loses their dear pet and fewer people will suffer such horrific injuries.
I'm all for that! Let the pitbulls, rottwielers however you spell it and that other vicious breed of mongrels die off. Pitbulls have absolutely no credibility as far as I'm concerned. The whole breed should be neutered and the breed should die off. The planet would be a better place without them.

a parent is 100 times more likely to kill their child than a dog. A crib is 5 times more likely to cause a child's death than a dog. let's try training the dogs first, not just killing them. by the way "Bene Gesserit” shut up, you're way wrong, unless Pit Bulls are suddenly killing 348 people a day.(the number of people murdered every day)

how often dies somebody when that person is bitten by a spaniel? and if a pitbull bites somebody, oooh thats just a little scratch.
No a pitbull is "made" by breeders to kill.
