The only thing I'm watchin' is a pit takin two in the head....

Most pits in the last 100 years, have been born and breed to hunt, fight, kill, destroy, or whatever other verb you can think of. These dogs aren't mini poodles or beagles that are doscile and breed for comfortable living. They are a breed to protect anything from anything and will attack anything at any givin time, even when not threatened or provoked. If they were such good dogs, then why here in florida in some counties, is it mandatory to register your pit as soon as you get it? Because they are considered an extremely aggresive animal.

You know because people never attack each other.

When I lived in Oregon I used to help at the Pit Bull rescue that tried to save these animals from people who raised them to do the horrible things you just talked about. Now with all the media attention that dog attacks get, an attack will get labeled as a pit bull attack even if the dogs were not pit bulls at all. \

 

I have seen numerous media clips where the headline across the screen will say "pitbull" and then when they show the actual dog it is not a pit bull at all. 

 

The fact that your immediate reaction would be to kill a dog, just because it is of a certain breed says more about you than it does about pitbulls to be honest I don't believe in breeding pets, as there are so many homeless ones but I think we have a responsibility to care for the ones that are already here.

 I believe that they've been banned (or in the process of being banned) in some areas of Canada too!

 

It's like having a live weapon that you can't control!

My sister works in the PEDS unit of our local hospital... and the stories she tells me of what this pit did to that kid, or that pit did to this other kid... I'd f**king kill them all if I had the chance.

Exterminate the breed

...oh yeah, death to PETA as well. I despise ALL terrorists...

Id bet over half those cases either werent actually pit bulls, or were in neighborhoods where it is cool for "tough guys" to get pit bulls and chain them up in the backyard. They are very social animals, and often suffer from serious seperation anxiety if left alone tied up.

 

In Portland, OR where animal welfare is a concious issue, a lot of people adopt and rehabilitate pitbulls with almost no issues. Sure any animal can have aggression issues, reglardless of who cares for them. However with Pitbulls more often than not it is the PEOPLE who mistreat them that are the problem, not the animals.

I agree that we should care for the animals already here. That's why we got our dog at the shelter. Yes, people mistreat pits, beagels, muts, poodles, snails, ameoba, and those people need to be shot as well...put in jail anyways. But pits are aggresive by nature....period. Sure you here of another type of dog attack a human, such as rott's. They need to be shot too as they are just as aggressive as pits. For every 10 dog attacks you hear here on the news, etc., it was a pit or a rottie, you hear about 1other type. We had a black lab attack another dog the other day. Pits are killers by nature and should be left to the zoo's to take care of.

tech i call bullshit on every one of your posts. they are nothing more than the same old crap you hear in the news. there are lots of breeds that are mistaken for pit bulls, or even pit bull mixes that are labled as pit bulls. in fact if you look at the ukc website, and most affiliated organizational websites, pit bulls are rated safer to be around children than chihuaha's. i've seen people point out american bull dogs as pitbulls, sharpei's as pitbulls as well.

the most dangerous dogs to have around people that actually do snap are more like dauszhunds, akita's, chow's and sharpei's.

you spew bullshit in everyone of your posts(including your rant about rottweilers, we can blame that stigma on the movie "the omen"), the fact remains. pit bulls and rottweilers are working dogs. if they do get aggressive, they will do damage because they are strong. irresponsible owners are usually the cause of attacks in most cases. any dog that is not properly trained, and socialized will be a liability, and that goes for any breed.

kevaskous

Again you are highly misinformed, read above i care not to explain it any further than this once more.

 

the reason for more pit and rott attacks, is more owners abusively raising them, PERIOD. 

avatar

Rocketpop

I hate to mention this, but what you're saying is incredibly retarded. They're wild animals with teeth. The teeth are designed for biting things. They attack people when they feel they or their territory is threatened. They're fucking dogs. They're not naturally friendly to humans until we establish that we're part of their "pack." If we're not in their pack, we're a threat.

avatar

xveganx

the issue here is not whether or not dogs are animals, and can be territorial, or even whether they should be domesticated in the first place.

 The issue is about maligning a particular breed over all others, based on shitty companions and media spectacles. 

avatar

Rocketpop

Okay, then let's just agree that dogs are wild creatures that need to be domesticated so they don't maul small children. Is that reasonable?

avatar

Righteous Fury

There is no way you, me or anyone else could possibley prove this statement true OR false, so why bother making it? Honestly, the only way you could possibley know this is if you were the Almighy. Give it a rest, you cannot make a falsehood into a truth just because you wish it to be so.

avatar

TechJunkie

Making excuses for them and blaming it solely on humans is insane. Like I said before, my friends dog was loved like no other in the world but killed his 4 month old. Not only killed her, but ripped her into 30 pieces right in front of them.....so don't spew the...it's only the humans fault crap.

avatar

xs0u1x

30 pieces? again, BS, show me an article, police report or something. because this sounds more like word of mouth stories and pure vitriol for the breed.

avatar

TechJunkie

This happened over 13 years ago, and yeah, his pit threw his daughter around like a rag dog and I heard about the details. But in all honesty, I wasn't there, but he was a good friend and had no reason to exagerate the death of his daughter. I would contact him to get a report but he died in Iraq in 2003 and I haven't heard nor seen his wife since. So until YOU prove they don't maul a human, or any creature, don't call BS on me...just sounds to me your a pit lover and never want's to hear the truth.

avatar

xveganx

Oh military owner, pretty typical honestly. I could just as easily stereotype every asshole in the military as someone who is macho and would abuse animals.

I can even show you videos of marines in Iraq shooting puppies and blowing up dogs with grenades.

 

I could then use your same crap reductionist logic to say that all military personel are inhumane and should be shot.

 

Don't like stereotypes do you?

avatar

Rocketpop

What you just said had no logic associated with it, so you need to stop talking, for your own sake. I guess you don't mind stereotypes, since you're making a bad stereotype for other animal rights activists who show signs of conscious thought. Some of them want to be taken seriously at some point in the future.

avatar

TechJunkie

mmmmm, yeah? Then those marines should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. But you can't compare humans to dogs. That's like comparing termites to fighter jets. Fighter jets are flown by humans, built to destroy the enemy and or protect troops on the ground, termites are bugs that destroy your home. But yet you wanna eradicate termites because they're seen as pests. is that more stereo typical to you? So you can't compare.

avatar

Rocketpop

No, he seriously just tried to compare humans to dogs.

avatar

TechJunkie

Yeah I know. But seriously, I don't want ANY animal to die (except for PETA) because they have no place trying to get a character based dog banned from a game. I think they need to work on more serious issues than wasting time with this crap. I am an animal lover to an extent, just not the ones that are aggressive.

Video games have been around before PETA was even founded.  I can't say when game developers initially started using animals in games but one that comes to mind that I've played is Q-Bert.  What about that f***ing snake that always seemed to get me on that god forsaken pyramid?!  Was the snake not portrayed as a ravenous 8-bit killing machine way back then? 

 The point I'm trying to make is, why now?  Why pit bulls?  Why care about the portrayal of an animal IN A VIDEO GAME, when at the end of the day is only made up of a string of characters and not flesh and blood?

Some of these comments are just dripping with hypocrisy...

Instead of pit bulls, the devs should have Ingrid Newkirks. An Ingrid Newkirk is a sort of wild animal that would latch onto your balls, scream about animal "cruelty" and NEVER STOP.

Bullshiot! I had a friend that raised his brindle pitbull since birth with the utmost loving care. At three years old, his little fuck of a dog jumped off the couch, snatched, and killed his 4 month old baby, right from his wife's arms. Don't tell me these fuckers get a bad rap, these are worthless animals that should be put down as soon as they are born.....

But PETA is a PITA.

I'm going to quote South Park with "Vegan Pussies"

Whenever I hear about PETA I think about the South Park episode where they show PETA members marrying animals and having hybrid animal people. And the leader of PETA is a Goat or something. LOL..

PETA is just like that show called Whale Wars, just a bunch of Vegan Pussies.

in a unrelated note, new game, pitbull wars! where you have to get pitbulls to attack peta members and sneak up on them while they are eating their crappy vegan chocolate.

This is awesome. Where do I get a copy?

PETA Makes me want to kill animals. ACtually I'm going to start a new group people eating endangered tasty animals who wants to join? We can start with some elephant then some whales...

 I can understand having an issue if it was real life, but it's a text based/still image base game. I'd like to know how this effects those of you who may have a Pit Bull. How many of you had ever heard of Mafia Wars, played Mafia Wars, etc.

 

I know someone who was killed by some moron street racing, I take major issue with any video game about street racing and DEMAND that all companies who produce any street racing games take them off the market! IMMEDIATELY!

xveganx: completely agree with you. those dogs get a bad rap that they do not deserve. proud owner of an APBT, completely trust him with my children. he's been nothing but loyal and obediant and loving as well as a guardian to my family when I am out of the house at work or something. these dogs are more than willing to lay their life on the line for their owners. 

 i despise peta, but actually agree with them on this point because it effects something in my household.

 It's sad that Zynga broke down and did this. PETA is such a shitty group. I wish they were shut down...

btw pit bulls is spelt with a U not an I

It's a text based game. Why is PETA involved with this. 

 

Electronically charged

avatar

Caboose

 Because there is a digital version of a real animal, and so Peta feels that they have to help the poor text based doggies!

Usually PETA makes me cringe, however I actually agree with this. Pit Bulls if properly cared for are some of the sweetest, and most loyal dogs out there. They get a really bad rap, and have to suffer ridiculous amounts of abuse because of it. I am saddened anytime pitbulls are portrayed in a negative light.

I didn't know dogs weren't capable of hurting people. I guess I can approach all dogs without worrying about it, then. They're all man's best friend, according to these guys, after all.
