You can buy anything you want or not — makes no difference. The fact remains that the media id EVERYTHING as a “pit bull” — and when the retraction comes, it’s buried on page 7 or further back. Coincidence? No, I don’t think so. Furthermore, considering the number of “mixes” in this country it’s astonishing that everything can get so ahem — “accurately identified” in this country. Again, conspiracy? No, but agenda — most definitely. Finally — and there’s really no point in going beyond this post because your sources of info. are suspect, breed i.d. is a very tricky thing and considering the number of times the media gets it wrong, and only OCCASIONALLY corrects their records, one cannot possibly have valid stats on which breeds are the “most dangerous”, “bite the most”, etc... Nor is “pit bull” a valid breed, by the way — further complicating the problem. I never cease to be amazed at the number of conservatives on this site who, after vitiating the media on numerous occasions for not being truthful with anything else, suddenly do an about face when it comes to dog bites and assume that “just this once” they got it right — even when they have clearly stated otherwise. As if the media suddenly became the great arbiters of truth!! Now THAT’S FUNNY!!
I referred to the insurance companies - you deflect to the media. How about medical staff? Are they agenda driven liars too? Why aren’t there more ER physicians supportive of this breed? I researched this issue before I began posting about it. I read the stories (and saw horrific photos) of flesh stripped off bone so that the child’s hand still had flesh but the forearm bones were bare. Does that sound like the result of a normal dog bite to you? After he was sent via helicopter to a more advanced medical center, the first medical team of doctors, nurses and other assistants all gathered in an open medical bay, drew the curtain around the group, and quietly cried. All part of the conspiracy/agenda, eh?
There are a variety of resources which identify pit bull mixes and pits as the unpredictable aggressive breed they are; fans of the breed insist that only fans of the breed can identify them.
Your sources of info are suspect - they tend to show up on websites detailing the killing of yet another child by a pit bull and post pictures of a pit bull licking a child’s face...as if that were appropriate. Posting a picture of a pit bull liking a child’s face gives us all an idea what the scene of the child’s death looked like shortly before the dog attacked it. It gives us a close up view of how the child had once trusted the dog that would later rip it’s face off. It shows us the disparity in size - how the child’s head would fit in the dog’s mouth etc. It sometimes gives the impression that licking the child made the dog hungry to taste it’s flesh. But, your sources like to post such pictures wherever another child dies in the teeth of one or more pit bulls.
