Finally, the truth comes out! The media gets it wrong “Again” & perpetuates more fear and hate for the pit bull breed.

Special thanks to the National Canine Research Council for getting involved and ferreting out “the truth”

This is exactly what many pit bull parents and advocates have been up against in the fight to clear up the lies and or “misleading” headlines the media uses to grab attention. What happened to responsible journalism? I thought the goal of reporting was to get the public, truthful, accurate, and up to date information. It seems to me that they have become irresponsible and deceptive in their reporting in an effort to gain viewers, readers, and attention.

What the media does not want to accept responsibility for, is that their negligence and deceptive tactics are a significant factor in why pit bulls are relinquished to shelters and animal control, it is why so many perfectly good dogs die in shelters never to be adopted because the carry the name “pit bull” in their description. Their lack of ethics plays a huge part in the fear based bias people have with these dogs.

 they show you images of snarling pit bulls not ones that have chronic wiggle butt, they show you these images and not the ones with a pit bull happily co-existing with their house mates, neighbours and friends because a “nice” pit bull doesn’t sell papers!

Again I say a hearty THANK YOU to the council for being brave enough to get the “real” facts on these cases and expose the lies! Maybe now we can set the record straight and give these extraordinary dogs their reputation back, and in the process save some lives!

About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
