There are more states that have laws against pit bulls. It really has nothing to do with the dog, but the owner. Unfortunately some of the dogs are taught to kill and to be aggressive. Last year a 75+ woman in the Kansas City area was weeding in her backyard. A neighbors pit bull jumped the fence and attacked her and she was killed. Just recently two pits killed a young child. As much as I love animals, I can replace an animal, but I cannot replace my mother, grandmother or child.

Thinking about it though, perhaps the owners should be put out of their misery instead. A sad, sorry state of affairs indeed.

It is very sad indeed, my friends have a pit bull and they swear she is the most gentle thing - but I am still a little afraid of her and wont let her play with my dogs. As an insurance person, in the STate of NJ you cannot even get homeowners Insurance if you own a pit bull (and several other aggressive breeds). I know that my friends dog is very well trained & is well taken care of, but Susie is right, it is the owner that trains them to be mean that is the problem!!
