Re: “More on pits

Dear Mr. Lyons,

As an American citizen, I understand you have the right to your opinion; however, your news piece is really an editorial. I am outraged that you choose to belittle a loving and docile collection of dogs. Pit bull type dogs cover hundreds of mixed breeds. If you would look back in history, Pit Bull type dogs were called nanny dogs because they took great care of children. Your picture indicates that you are perhaps old enough to remember the television show, "The Little Rascals," which a Pit Bull type dog was the star.

Dog aggression is not natural for any breed. Remember, dogs are domesticated which by Merriam-Webster's definition means "to adapt (an animal or plant) to life in intimate association with and to the advantage of humans * when humans first domesticated the dog."

Illiterate, non-responsible and perhaps greedy humans have chosen a very loyal breed (meaning a breed that really wants to do what is asked by his human) to dog-fight or be vicious. The owner is training a domesticated animal to do vile things. Many pit bull type dogs are tortured, and/or given cocaine to alter its normal docile personality. Pit Bull type dogs are often put to death in a horrific fashion if they choose not to fight. I am assuming you heard of Michael Vick's dogs. Many Michael Vick dogs were electrocuted, hung, slammed to the ground until they died. How passionate those domesticated dogs were who refused to fight.

The humans have the issues not the dogs. Yes, innocent humans suffer at the hands of terrible and perhaps psychopathic people just as innocent people suffer and are maimed by distracted drivers. Hmm, maybe thats a cause you could take up and leave the innocent Pit Bull type dogs alone.

Now you have my opinion.
