Re: “The Dogfather

oh, corratodior. wake up.

yes, pit bulls have very real problems that other breeds don't have. YOU, to name one of them.

ignorance and fear aren't going to help dog bite prevention, and they're certainly not going to help the single most populous and exploited breed in this country. if you actually read the ENTIRETY of the CDC report, you'd note that the conclusion of the report is that dog bites aren't a breed-specific issue.

but you don't like the conclusion, do you? you like to pull meaningless statistics out of context to prop up a lame argument based on laziness, ignorance and fear.

saying that pit bulls bite more people is like saying that honda accords are stolen more often than ferraris. DUH. there's shit-tons more of them out there, and in the case of pit bulls there's a lot of less-than-savory people breeding breeding breeding and selling selling selling them to the point that it's actually a surprise that more of them don't have defective temperaments.

pit bulls are overbred to the point that we'd all be dead if they were so dangerous as you'd like to think. good lord, have you been to a local shelter?

here's how to curb dog bites:

1) enforce leash laws
2) enforce licensing laws
3) education

here's how to curb the dog overpopulation problem:

1) all-breed spay/neuter ordinances with actual enforcement
2) education
3) ethics committees in breed clubs
4) free spay/neuter programs
5) spay/neuter incentives

this isn't rocket science. and it's a lot simpler and more effective than trying to demonize a single dog breed because you don't want to look to the source of the problem, which has opposable thumbs and walks at the other end of the leash.

(or, in this case, the other end of the back door.)
