I started a new thread for this, not sure why, I should've just posted it here, haha: Every year pit bull terriers are responsible for the death of 3 people. 40 children a year drown in 5 gallon water pails, in your lifetime you are 16 times more likely to drown in a 5 gallon water pail than be killed by a pit bull. Pit bulls were known as the number 1 family dog in the 20th century, but the very same qualities that make this breed such a wonderful pet, are also valued by those who use them as fighting dogs, training them in brutal methods, some even going as far as to sew bottle caps under the dogs skin to ensure they're in constant pain, to make then more aggresive. 150 people a year are killed by falling coconuts, making you 60 times more likely to be killed by a palm tree than by a put bull. Pit bull puppies, ones that have never fought before are often killed because their parents were fighters, since when did it become guilty until proven innocent? According to the American Canine Temperament Testing Association, 82.5% of the American Pit Bull Terriers that took the temperament test passed, compared to a 77% passing rate for all breeds on average. In the test a dog is placed in a series of confrontational situations. The first sign of aggression or panic is a failure of the test. Pit Bulls have achieved the fourth highest passing rate of all 122 breeds tested. It is more than half a million times more likely that a human will kill a pit-bull than the other way around. For every pit bull that kills, there are 10.5 million that don't. Most pit bulls are killed by they're owners because they REFUSE TO FIGHT in dogfights. So millions of pit bulls are being blamed for the actions of .94% of the breed. Copy and repost this somewhere else if you think the banning/killing of pitbulls is wrong.
