It's objectively a dangerous breed. Owning one should be legal, but no different than owning a gun. The owner should be charged as if they had walked up and killed the cat.

It's objectively a dangerous breed.

All dogs are predators, they all have the potential to be dangerous. It's up to the owner to make sure the dog doesn't hurt anyone or anything it's not supposed to. I train dogs professionally and work with loads of aggressive dogs; I guarantee you that every single time a dog bites someone, or kills a cat, or kills a kid, it is the fault of the owner/handler. Unless we're dealing with a clear cut defense situation, then it's almost always the fault of the person getting bit.

Thanks for a little bit of sanity, this thread turned into "Pits are evil and want to murder people for no reason but every other dog breed is lovable and harmless and never hurts anybody ever and if you disagree with me I'll gun you down because you're bad".

I never thought I'd get downvoted so hard for advocating that maybe people should take some personal responsibility for their dogs and not blame everything on Pitbulls.

A Chihuahua isn't going to kill a cat.

That's entirely way too reasonable...
