The majority of people concur that pit bulls are hazardous, however some disagree. They think that pit bull owners are actually to blame when their dogs maul others.

“We are devastated to learn that vicious canines have been attacking people. These horrific tales have damaged the reputation of canines, particularly pit bulls. People who are hostile toward them characterize them as hazardous. Pit bulls, however, are not as dangerous as we may believe. They shouldn’t be any more dangerous than other dog breeds if properly raised. Owners of pit bulls are the dangerous ones; the dogs themselves are not.
