I have always read that the pit bull went from a quietly talked about breed to an all out bad guy in the media. And I heard that it occurred sometime after the banning of dog fighting. I heard this was due to people getting out of the fighting sports just turning their dogs loose, but don't know if it's true or not. Do you think that the banning of dog fighting brought a lot of attention to a little known sport... thus the thugs saw it and decided they needed to get a pit bull? I just wonder when the first pit bull attacks were reported in the media and how all of the myths such as locking jaws got started.
