"I know LD doesn't want to acknowledge how vicious pit bulls can be, but I hope she's aware now that these aren't just isolated incidences of pit bulls gone berzerk. Expressed as a percentage of pet pit bulls, attacks are commonplace. About 60% of all dog attacks are done by pit bulls. At the very least, she should not allow her dog to be around children." Catherine---------------------It's the old question of nature versus nurture. Fate versus predestination. Is aggression written into the DNA of some breeds of dogs? The Argentinian "Dogo" Pressario is another breed of dog that is sort of known for it's aggression. A woman in San Francisco was mauled and I think killed by two Argentinian Pressario's. I contend that a tendency towards aggression can be written into the genetics of some breeds of dogs. It can lie hidden and buried for years till something is triggered in the dog and they go off and attack someone. And it only happens once. Then the dog is shot or euthanized. And yes not all Pitt Bulldogs will go off and attack some one. The problem is that you don't know when you get a pitt bulldog puppy whether they carry the gene for the propensity to go nuts. Art
