Your story is extremely informative and sheds a better light on pitbulls in general. My only concern is whether or not the viewpoint of David Monroe's would ever be changed. "Until there's not a problem with this, society needs to take steps to protect itself." Notice that he recalls the story and tries to pin the pitbulls on the "problem." The problem is overpopulation and lack of kennels to handle the overpopulation. The problem is stray animals of any breed developing overtime their only mechanisms for survival. Even a Golden Retriever or a Yellow Lab or a German Shepherd would develop these kinds of survival tactics if it was born and raised "on the streets." Dogs can be territorial if not trained appropriately. It's really a nature/nuture issue. What all dogs, not just pitbulls, need good, responsible owners willing to train their dogs. Hopefully, your article shows enough people that these pitbulls, if nurtured like any other dog, are just as (if not more) loyal, loving, caring beings who want nothing more to be pet and snuggle.
