This kind of Half Assed reporting is what really makes my blood boil!
Here was my email response to CBC:
First off where did you do your research from dogsbite.org? VERY irresponsible reporting!
Pit Bulls were bred originally to fight Bulls in a pit, You know those cows with horns! thus the name PIT BULL hello! they were NOT originally bred to fight dogs!
It was only when bull fights were outlawed that MAN turned them against each other, years after that when man wised up, well some did anyway. They were bred to be the ultimate family dog, thus the name “The Nanny Dog” I guessed you missed that little history lesson huh CBC?
Second why are you not doing stories on all the other breeds of dogs that have attacked people? This is the exact kind of media bias, and half-baked reporting that gets these dogs banned and sometimes euthanized in the first place, innocent dogs that have never done anything to anyone!
This kind of reporting is disgusting! get your facts straight! why not do a story on Dolly the Pit Bull, or Caesar’s dog Junior. Or the multitude of pit bulls used as service dogs, or the success stories from the Vick dogs?
You should be ashamed of yourselves! I am posting a copy of your story on my blog to show people exactly what I have been saying all along about irresponsible reporting! I hope you get emails about this one!
