Its all because of a bad dog attack.. There are hundreds of dog attacks every day but as soon as one is a Pit then all heck breaks loose.. And of coarse it was the dogs fault and not the owners who raised him the wrong or mean way.

SAN ANTONIO -- There is a new push to prevent dog attacks in Texas.
An East Texas mother, who lost her 10-year-old son after he was mauled by pit bulls, is working to draft legislation called Justin's Law.
Serenia Clinton's attorney says the ultimate goal is banning ownership of pit bulls. But a responsibility bill for owners of dangerous dog breeds, like pit bulls and rottweilers, would be a step in the right direction.
"Some people have pit bulls and they think their pit is a safe pet, unfortunately, they're a safe pet until they act on their abnormally dangerous propensities," says the Clinton's attorney, Cynthia Kent.
Kent says she hopes to have a draft of Justin's Law in the hands of state lawmakers within 30 days. She plans to file the draft before the next legislative session begins in January.

Well there are enough owners there in the state to keep this from passing... I wouldnt put it past the legislature to try and pass something like this especially with the nations eyes on the house right now with all the other stuff going on...

My honest opinion (as I lived there once upon a time) Texas is notorious for being "out of the ordinary" where their laws are concerned and this would put them in that category with only one other - Denver...

There always seems to be 2 pit bulls (or more) in these horrible news stories. I wonder why that is?

Grrr @ irresponsible owners who leave their dogs outside without proper supervision. That fence was what? 4 feet? Those dogs likely lived out there with little to no interaction with people.

Oh and banning pit bulls will not stop dog attacks because not all dog attacks are by pit bulls. Idiots. Their logic has so many holes....
