  1. I read the article and thought exactly the same thing. Pit bulls don’t telegraph their intentions like other dogs. Victims I’ve spoken with in the E.R. often describe pit bull attacks as coming, “from out of the blue.”

  2. That’s exactly right. “Fighting breed” dogs, specifically the manner in which they attack, avoid showing normal dog communication. The Denver pit bull ban and many others use this evidence to support their bans. State Supreme Courts and US District Courts have equally upheld this evidence as valid. In February 2008, the United States Supreme Court felt the issue was too stupid to comment on so they denied it.

    This evidence was gathered by major animal advocacy organizations. But members like Bouchard continue to perpetuate myths that place people and pets at great harm. There is no such thing as a “fluke,” surprising pit bull attack. Back when there was no Google, perpetuating myths about pit bulls was easier. Through Google and the power of the Internet, we as concerned citizens have a chance to call these folks on their dishonesties.

  3. The animal welfare organizations are sitting on top of $Millions of taxfree donations. It’s only a matter of time until they get sued for intentionally placing dogs that kill other dogs.
