Unlicensed dogs wandering at dusk on the edge of a busy street and reported to be a danger to the public at large. Yup the cop took the correct action.

Were they actually pitbull or were they a pitbull mix, or perhaps not even a pitbull at all, just a large dog that could resemble a pitbull to someone unknowledgable of the breed. Im not doubting the seriousness of this situation, however I do hate how bad of a reputation these poor gentle giants get. Its always Pittbull did this, pittbull did that. If anyone would get to know this breed, they would learn how loving of a breed they are. When you do see incidents such as the one above, its because of a bad owner, not a bad dog. I encourage everyone to learn a little about pittbulls, and help to clear there name. Did you know that Golden Retriever's have a higher attack rate, and fatality rate than pittbulls? Its true! Have a wonderful day everyone!

Ive owned pitbulls my whole life and never have they ever endangered any
One or thing. They have been the most calm well behaved animal I've ever owned and it discusts me to here or listen to ignorant brainless people who are just scared of a real dog.
