Letter: Pit bulls

I read in the paper March 22 of another pit bull attack. I have written before about my feeling that all pit bulls should be eradicated. This time it was the owner who was attacked and mauled. The article said the dog had bitten the owner before and it had a history of violence. It also stated there are two children in the house. A known, troubled pit bull could kill either of those children in minutes. What will it take for the defenders of these uncontrollable killer animals to wake up and admit that pit bulls have no place in our world? I hear comments about what sweet dogs they are. Look at the picture of the owner’s arms and tell me how sweet that is.
