I have a Pit Bull and my opinions about the breed may be a bit strong and biased. Ye've been warned. Discriminating against a breed and banning them was probably the stupidest decision in the history of politics Ontario, Canada has ever made. Canadian Government has all these civilized awesome laws about Free health care, probably is the most diverse country in all of the world, yet discriminates against a breed of a dog. Pit Bulls may have been trained to fight other dogs, but if their upbringing involves responsible socializing with other dogs, there is no way that they can be a danger to the community. It's like being racist towards black people, that can't speak for themselves other than a bark and a whimper. To euthanize a man's best friend can have extremely negative effect on families of those who would have to deal with something like this. there is a case of a suicide after a Pitt was taken away from the owner. The suicide note to a dog said, I'm sorry I couldn't protect you, See you in heaven. The reason Pitts were the perfect fighting dog is because when separated from the opponent, it would not be in rage at the human. Pitts are trained to fight, they aren't born vicious. There are cases of Pitts attacking a human, and I can guarantee with my heart that those Pitts were trained to attack humans by some sick minded irresponsible dog owners who do not value their dogs, or their time. If I meet a person like that, I would delightfully punch a hole through their teeth. The Pit Bull ban was put in place due to media's overreaction. Unless there is legitimate proof that those dogs that caused injuries did not have an abusive past, the ban is stupid, and the argument of the ban is INVALID. Educate the people, Ban irresponsible owners but DO NOT ban the breed!
