The month of October is Pit Bull Awareness month. It is also the month for the first walk to remember the victims of pit bulls and other dangerous dogs.
This walk for victims has incurred the wrath of a national pit bull writer and she refers to it as the "Pit Bull Hate Walk in Tucson". Let's see exactly where the hate comes in.
This national writer should be encouraging her comrades to participate in this walk and without their pit bulls along side.
You never hear of walks or fundraising for these poor victims of vicious pit bull attacks but you will hear of many a walk/fundraiser for the pit that did the attack. The public might be more accepting about pit bulls if they could see pit owners having more respect for victims by helping them with fund raisers rather than a walk for a poor, misunderstood breed as they like to say.
There is nothing misunderstood when a child asks for his other face back when the bandages come off after a pit attack. Attacks by pit bulls are leaving victims with life altering injuries, financial ruin, and numerous other emotional traumas that you and I would have nightmares about. The writer goes on to condemn a pit bull victim who has taken up the cause of advocacy for other victims. Rather than offering a solution to the carnage left by pit bulls, the writer chooses instead to victimize a victim.
Victimizing pit bull victims by the pit apologists is standard in comments on the news articles about pit attacks. Pit apologists have gone so far as to blame an innocent child for their attack. The worse comment I have seen from a pit apologist was that the child deserved the attack.
Where is this hate coming from? Why is the pit community in such denial of what their canines are doing daily? Beloved pets, herds of farm animals are being mauled and killed daily by pit bulls, where is the concern for these animals from the pit community?
I encourage all who can to participate in this first walk to acknowledge the hundreds, thousands, of pit bull and other dangerous dogs victims. They deserve the same respect as victims of drunk drivers or gang shootings. You won't see the pit community spreading hate about these victims, then ask yourself, why do they hate the victims of pit bulls so much that they would add to the victim agony? The national writer is expressing much more hatred than she claims is coming from the other side.
