I finally found the atricle that Sports Illustrated did on July 27,1987. I was apawled by the cover picture. I can't believe that a reputable magizine would do such a thing. I get so mad when I see things like this. I was watching a show the other day and say a teaser for the Dayton 7 news and they were doing a story on pits and the law in Ohio not being enforced. So I of course recorded it to see what they had to say because they are about an hour and half south of me. The story orginated from a lady being attacked while walking her dog and her dog died. She was only bitten in the leg. Anyways that dog I don't believe was a pit but of that nature. Then they interviewd a political offical and he believe it or not stood up for the breed. Saying it's the owners not the dogs. I almost jumped off the couch to run up and kiss my TV LOL. But it was amazing to hear someone in politics actually defend this breed and say law enforcement needs to be looking at the owners and how they treat them.
