The terrifying reality is, nutters intentionally put their infants at risk. Whether it's to take pictures to post on the internet to show how safe their maulers are, or for the mere fact that they have pit bulls around infants. Any way you look at it, it is inherently dangerous to allow blood sport dogs around helpless babies.
