Pit bulls should be banned because of vicious attacks

2012-06-12T23:00:00Z Pit bulls should be banned because of vicious attacks nwitimes.com

Pit bulls should be banned from towns based on statistical data of children chased, children bitten, children maimed, children murdered. When you factor in the number of adults ravaged, it's overwhelming. ]

They will never retreat. In tandem they're devastating. They have a vice bite jaw like an opossum. Once they clamp on, you need a crowbar or gun to pry them loose. An Army Ranger wouldn't stand a chance.

Do we care about our children more than this maniacal breed? Recently a little girl was flown to Chicago for emergency treatment after an attack.
