Every year, Pit Bull Terriers are responsible for the death of 3 people.


40 children a year drown in 5 gallon water pails. In your lifetime, you are almost 14 times more likely to drown in a 5 gallon water pail then be killed by a Pit Bull.


Pit Bulls were known as the number 1 family dog in the 20th century. But the very same qualities that make this breed such a wonderful pet are also valued by those who use them as fighting dogs, training them in brutal methods, some even going as far as to sew bottle caps under the dogs skin to ensure they're in constant pain, to make them more aggresive.


150 people a year are killed by falling coconuts, making you 50 times more likely to be killed by a palm tree then by a Pit Bull.


Pit Bull puppies, ones that have never fought before, are often killed because their parents were fighters.


<center>Since when did it become guilty?</center>


  According to the American Canine Temperament Testing Association, 82.5% of the American Pit Bull Terriers that took the temperament test passed, compared to a 77% passing rate for all breeds on average. In the test, a dog is placed in a series of confrontational situations. The first sign of aggression or panic is a failure of the test. Pit Bulls have achieved the fourth highest passing rate of all 122 breeds tested.


It is more then half a million times more likely that a human will kill a Pit Bull, then the other way around.


For every Pit Bull that kills, there are 10.5 million that don't.


Most Pit Bulls are killed by their owners because they REFUSE TO FIGHT in dogfights.


So millions of Pit Bulls are being blamed for the actions of .94% of the breed.


Copy and repost this if you think the banning/killing of Pit Bulls is wrong.
I got this from :iconsydneyrose35:

I love Pit Bulls. :iconpitbullplz: I want to become an activist for them. They don't deserve to die. They most CERTAINLY don't deserve to be in dog fights, either. They're capable of love and compassion. You just need to give them a chance.

I get yelled at by students for several reasons at school. For liking Queen, for not being like the majority of students, and for loving Pit Bulls.

One day, I want to be able to say 'I love Freddie Mercury' without being made fun of. I want to wear my leopard print jacket and mini skirt without being laughed at. I want to be able to hug a Pit Bull without being yanked away from it, and having to listen to a lecture from people, that Pit Bulls are dangerous.

Pit Bulls aren't vicious if you give them a chance. Just reach out to the Pit Bulls. They need you.

"Show me what it's like,
To be the last one standing!
And teach me wrong from right,
And I'll show you what I can be!
And say it for me,
Say it to me,
And I'll leave this life behind me!
Say it if it's worth savin' me!
Hurry, I'm fallin'!"

I kinda laughed at the palm tree thing. And I love pitbulls and they do not deserve everything that they are going through. I am glad i live in Maine were they aren't allowed to pass the law of pitbull banning.

We have 3 dogs. 2 chihuahuas and a rescued pitbull rotwiller mix.(we found her in a thorn bush near our house all cut up because of the thorns and her last owner and fully grown) and I will tell you right now if you go near the pit/rot mix she will put her paws on your shoulder, knock you to the floor, and lie down on you, and begin to lick your face clean off your head. if you run up to the chihuahuas they will try to eat your leg off. its is the funniest damn thing to see this huge bad ass, scar-face looking dog getting her ass handed to ger by this scrawny chihuahua puppy. absalutly hilarious.
