Down in Florida, where else, one neighbor's two pit bulls attacked and killed the other neighbor's chickens. Here's a picture of what the remains of a chicken killed by pit bulls might look like....
I've said it before and I'll say it again....people who own pit bulls should be held criminally responsible when those dogs attack and kill. Pit bulls have one purpose....killing. That's all they do. It's chickens today, but tomorrow it'll be that family's kids who get attacked as they run around their yard playing. Pit bulls don't know the difference between a chicken, a rabbit, and a child. They're all just small things that run and need to be eaten.
If a pit bull attacked anyone in my family, there'd be no measure to the fury with which I would slaughter that animal. And after I shot the dog, I'd have to pistol-whip the owner, purely on principle.
I know there are a lot of pitbull defenders out there so give your defense of pitbulls your best shot in the comment thread.
