And not that long ago this morning, someone else commented on this story, first stating they were glad they kids involved were okay (as am I–I would hate to hear of anyone getting injured by an animal). But they went on to describe an incident where they were attacked by a pitbull, and that particular animal was also shot and killed. They, due to this, fully believe this breed should be banned from the city. I’m just not sure how I feel about it…maybe I’m a bit biased because I, too, own a pitbull. But we take precautions when playing, walking, etc., knowing he has a stronger build than other dogs around him, and that he can tend to be more dog-aggressive. I’m just interested in how many attacks happen by other breeds that don’t make the news?
