|Posts like this do nothing but further aggravate the bias. People see this and think "Oh no, another pit killed" Why? Because these are the stories they are seeing all over the place.
Why aren't the stories of the 3 week old baby killed by a husky in Bourbonnais, Illinois, the 3 year old killed by a Rottweiler in Ft. Worth Texas, the 4 year old killed by a Rottweiler in Chicago, IL, the 8 year old killed by the 100 pound mixed breed, the 2 week old killed by a Chow in Mesa, AZ, the 38 year old man killed by two bull mastiffs in Rancho Mirage, the 3 year old killed by a husky in Wayne County, GA, being plastered all over the place? Spreading the news of these "pit" incidents doesn't help a darn thing.
Perhaps the title should have been ANOTHER child killed after being left unsupervised with dogs. 8 of the 11 fatalities of 2009 were children left with dogs unsupervised. THAT is the REAL story.
