    Note: Pits are killing adults at rates not seen in other breeds. They are "different".

  3. It must really be something when the genetics kick in and the eyes go reptilian….Then your own pittie starts relentlessly mauling you to death.

    To add insult to injury, the Pit Peddlers treat you as a speed bump by posthumulously throwing you under the bus as a bad owner!

    This phenomenon must be studied!….
