Pit bulls earn band after years of bad publicity


November 09, 2006


When it comes to dogs with a tainted reputation for their vicious nature, pit bulls are usually at the top of everyone’s list. The breed has had quite a bit attention for some years now in the media when it comes to vicious attacks on pedestrians and children.

Pit bulls, of course, are not the only dogs of a dangerous nature. Any dog with the proper upbringing can become a potential threat to the public, but because of highly publicized coverage, pit bulls in particular have a reputation for being rather aggressive.

In an attempt to prevent the ongoing occurrences of innocent bystanders being attacked by pit bulls, cities make different attempts at preventing these incidents from continuing. According to the Associated Press, as of May 2005 Denver won a court fight in reinstating one of the toughest pit bull bans nationwide. In an almost three-month span, more than 380 dogs were impounded and 260 were destroyed. Denver is one of three major metropolitan areas to enact such a ban on pit bulls, along with Miami and Cincinnati. The ban put forth includes any dog which “looks” like a pit bull. So it looks like Denver has the mixed breed situation all figured out. The Denver ban of pit bulls began in 1989 after dogs mauled a man and killed a boy in separate attacks.

According to another news report, the good folks of Indianapolis recently debated a proposal for mandatory spaying, neutering and micro-chipping of most cats and dogs as a way to somehow prevent dog attacks. The proposal came about, in part, because of the mauling of a toddler by a pit bull.

Rather than trying to control the animal population through massive mandatory spay and neutering or the complete banning of pit bulls, it seems there should be more emphasis on the neglectful pet owner who allow the dog to escape from their yard or attack the neighbor’s kid to begin with. People need to be responsible for their own actions, and writing laws that ban particular breeds is not going to make these pet owners responsible for their dogs. A pet owner is likely to be more careful in making sure his dog is less capable of escaping the backyard or house if harsher penalties are enacted for those pet owners found to be neglectful. Besides, German shepherds and dobermans can be just as vicious as pit bulls, so do we need to ban them too?
