Silence and Excuses Kill More Pits than Vick
Who did this?
Simple: the folks who breed Pit Bulls ... and the folks who are silent about that.
Remember that most Pit Bulls are bred by people who say they "love" the dogs, and then they sell or give the dogs to anyone who will take them. The dogs are then acquired in haste by people who say they "love" the dogs, and then...six months or nine months later... the dogs are taken to a "shelter" by people who say they "love" the dogs, but they simply cannot deal with a Pit Bull.
And then the dog is killed about 95% of the time.
More Pit Bulls were killed in "shelters" last year than all of the dogs registered by the AKC.
When asked what can be done about all this, the people who say they "love" these dogs just shake their head. Dogs are property, don't 'cha know, and there's nothing to be done. Special licensing? Special home inspections? Mandatory spay-neuter? No, no, no.
