Every year it's the same old story. The pit bulls and their mixes dominate the human death tally and yet, if you read the comments after the news stories, the pit nutters can never see the obvious. In their twisted minds, it's never the dog's fault. I'm in utter amazement how these people cannot see the obvious. I guess the roots of denial run exceedingly deep. But, what I would like to know is, why can't the politicians see the obvious and ban these mutated monsters out of our communities?

politicians are cowards like the CDC, the dog trainer association and vets.
