10/10/07 Pit Bulls

When you think of a Pit Bull, do you think this: or this? Are Pit Bulls just destined to be more aggressive and violent?  Or do they only become that way because they have bad owners?  Are laws regulating Pit Bulls unfair?  Or do they provide needed protection for people?  Lots of people get mauled by dogs each year.  I can think of three cases in Baltimore City that got press just this summer.  Two of the victims were seven year old children.  Today we will talk with people on different sides of this issue. Let us know if you have a Pit Bull story, as an owner, or someone who knows a Pit Bull.  Good or bad experiences, share them here. -Jessica
