People that believe that pit bulls are aggressive dogs, you should look at a well-trained pit bull and an untrained dog and see that any dog can be aggressive without training and love. Any dog can be aggressive and mean by just how you raise the dog, if the dog is abused then the dog will be scared and if the dog is loved and cared for the dog is very loving and loyal. When dogs get sick or hurt they don 't like to be played with, they might even bite a person, they get mean because they are hurting and weak, so there instincts tells them to protect themselves. People think that pit bulls are a breed that will most likely bite people, but that 's not true, the American Veterinary Medical Association found that no dog is more dangerous than
“There are about 78 million dogs in the United States, meaning less than 17% of dogs bite less than 1.4% and kill less than 0.00001% of the US population.” states Lindsy Marchello, Brian Hare, Vannessa Woods, and United States Burau. It is important to know this because discrimination should not happen against dogs just because they are at the top of the list for being brutal. People need to remember that not all of them are like that. Not all pit bulls are mean.
Baiting was outlawed in 1835, which caused people to start setting their dogs off on each other. This cruel treatment wasn’t outlawed until 2008 (ASPCA, n.d.). This rough past is the only thing people go off of when they look at a Pit Bull. Little do they know that these dogs are just loyal to their masters and want to please them. They were not bred to attack their families but for a cruel sport that humanity has created (Johnson, 2012).
Breed-Specific Legislation (BSL) is a law that bans or restricts certain types of dogs based on their appearance, usually because they are perceived as “dangerous” breeds or types of dogs. BSL has targeted pit bulls for many years trying to ban them and will not address the fact that a dog of any breed can become dangerous when bred or trained to be aggressive. Some states have actually enacted BSL specifically to the owners of pit bulls in Denver (Pit). To this day, Denver still has the law, however, it continues to have significantly higher dog bite-related hospitalization rates than other counties (Pit). Ironic, right?
Dog fighting/fights can be dangerous. Dogfighting is a felony in 50 states. The dog fighting area can vary from a 14-20 foot square. Dog fights can take as little as 45 min but as long as one hour. The dogs are blocked in with hay bales, chain fence, wood fence, chains and much more.
In the 1980’s, the targeted breed was the Rottweiler, and from the 1990’s to now, the Pitbull has been the targeted breed. A major factor that has influenced BSL, is the popularity of dog fighting. The history of the Pitbull explains why they are such a wanted breed for dog fighting. At their origin they were bred to participate in bull fighting or bear baiting.
Hounds are made to kill anyone that breaks the law. The government doesn 't care if violence is used, its part of life. “A four inch hollow steel needle plugged down from the proboscis of the Hound to inject massive jolts of morphine and procaine.” (Bradbury 22).
Why Pit Bulls Are Being Banned Pit Bulls are known for their intelligence, courageousness and obedience. Once refereed to as the “nanny dog” for their good-natured ability to play and interact with children, as well as their loyalty. To some this is their point of view; others see Pit Bulls as viscous, threating, and deadly dogs (Dogs Bite). From coast to coast here in the United States of America and all across the globe, Pit Bulls are being banned. I will be giving facts on both sides of this epic controversy that is becoming a very big situation around the world.
Argumentative Essay by: Elizabeth Mayer Pit Bulls Should Be Pets Think of a dog, with a strong jaw, sleek short fur, and a little tail. This dog is called a Pitbull and some people say this dog is bad or vicious because it is called a Pitbull, however I believe that pit bulls should be pets because they can be very sweet, they have a bad rep because of the media, and they can be a great addition to the family. First, there are many pros to having a Pitbull other than the fact that if they grow up in the correct environment, they can be the sweetest dogs ever. There is also the fact that some are heroes, in paragraph 3, source three the text states “in the early 1900s, the pit bull was one of the most popular breeds In America.
More than likely the people that get this type of dog would just train a different breed of dog such as german shepherds to do the same thing therefore, “banning pit bulls would make no progress”. http://www.opposingviews.com/i/should-pit-bulls-be-banned. “If it was determined that pit bulls were 5 times more likely to attack than any other dogs, that could mean that 5 out of 1 million pit bulls will attack in their lifetime instead of 1 out of 1 million. The point is the evidence that shows pit bulls are more likely to attack than other dogs is misinterpreted to mean that they are likely to attack”. http://www.opposingviews.com/i/should-pit-bulls-be-banned.
Dogs should not be executed for biting someone because it could be how they were raised. People raise their dogs to protect them and their family or home. Just because the dog bites the mail man when they bring the mail, does not mean they are mean and should be executed. It means the owner trained the dog to protect the house and they are doing what they were trained to do. Cops raise K9’s to protect the community from danger and they use them to get the suspect and they don’t get executed.
Increasing the severity of animal abuse by giving more prison time and harsher punishment can cut back on crimes such as dog fighting and greyhound racing, which brings drugs, violence and gambling to the areas they are in (Wyoming Tribune-Eagle). With dog fighting being only a misdemeanor and not a felony, the police don 't have the resources or time to put into it to investigate reported cases of it, and with the sentence being so minor, those who make a living off of fighting and racing dogs view a short 6 month sentence and a minor fine as just a sacrifice for the money. It has also been proven that people who harm animals for fun are most likely to move on to larger targets, like humans in the future. Keeping these offenders in prison for a longer time, would place them in a monitored environment for an extended period of time where mental instabilities can be picked up and taken care of before they hurt someone or something else. A lack of laws and regulations also makes it extremely easy for an animal offender, like a dog fighter, to obtain a new animal so that they can continue their abusive
If a dog is not socialized properly they tend to be more aggressive this is not limited to Pit bulls alone. Often Pitbull owners use the dog in fighting matches which have increased the stigma among the breeds. The dogs are born bought or stolen for the sole purpose of fighting in that process they get abused and neglected while in the care of the
There is a myth about pit bulls that says they have locking jaws, but their jaws actually exert less force than that of the rottweiler and the german shepherd. In terms of the potential of the dog to cause bodily harm, the caucasian ovcharka ranks number one at the top of the list. The list ranks pit bulls as number two stating that the majority of the pit bull breeds were used for dog fighting and are CONSIDERED the most dangerous dog in America, which does not prove they are. Statistics aren’t always accurate when it comes to the actions of the dog. The nature of pit bulls is not to be aggressive to a point where they cause major bodily harm; their experiences, their owners, and their upbringing determine their actions.
Animals all over the world are being abused every single day most of them will not make it to see tomorrow or have the love of a family they desire. Animals are not just objects used for your entertainment or for your sports but they are meant to either be wild or to be loved by a family who will not abuse them. You should not abuse them or abandoned them to fend for themselves when all they need is a little bit of love to make them happy. There are many sports that use particularly dogs and most of them are called dog fights which are used for your entertainment and they abuse the dogs to make them fear humans and other dogs. Dogs should not be afraid of other dogs but they should be able to cooperate with each other and have a family that will not abuse them and make the fight.
