|Hip Hop Artist DMX is an apparent enthusiast of pit bulls, but he was also arrested for animal abuse.|
And here is a dog that can be used as a weapon, there is no markmanship skill needed to learn or troublesome permit to obtain, and knives require close combat. A pit bull can become a weapon with a simple command of "sick 'em" leading to a terrifying hypovolemia, ripped tissue and crushed bones. For a sociopath, it must be more satisfying than a quick death by gun shot, a prolonged fight with a gripping dog. After all, it's this kind of brutal display these dogs were bred for, to entertain sociopaths. In any case, the advocacy hates it when you think of them in the same light as a goodly many of the low-crotch set, they will insist they are educated and moral.
You would think the advocacy would want to do something with the blatant mistreatment and neglect of these dogs. Drive around in a blighted neighborhood, and you will see dogs barely kept in fences that would fall over in the slightest breeze, woefully inadequate. You see the poor dog tied up in a big dust and dung heap, the lucky have a dirty inch of water in its bowl. You see some confused milk-laden bitch wandering the streets: she's done her duty, made a couple of hundred bucks for her owners, and now she is dumped in an empty lot like trash. Then there are the hoards of puppies, doomed to end up at animal control, where they may actually get the best treatment they have ever experienced before they are euthanized and rendered into fertilizer.
Oh, and then there are the abuse cases. Horrible and cruel, atrocities, we read of them too often. It's odd, safety advocates who push for BSL or regulation, or pit bull victims, you know, the haters, they are blamed for the cruelty. All of this was done by pit bull owners, not "haters". All that I know, if it was a Beagle, I would want to do something. Beagles have their own stories of cruelty, we must thank them for the sacrifice they make to medicine. Although they score lower on the ATTS test, for some odd reason, they are the choice of medical laboratories. You would think pit bulls, with their superior temperament and the fact that they are more impervious to pain, would make them superior laboratory specimens. And they have quite the supply of them at animal control thanks to these back yard breeders. I digress again. I have ADD.
|Speaking of Labs!|
And then of course, there is the fighting. This is what this type of dog was bred to do. Sometimes, these dogs get out, and they maul. These are the dogs that end up in the shelter, and are "rehabilitated", adopted and peddled by those sensitive squeaky clean vegan rescue angels with a college degree, some of them even being vet techs. You just never know which ones are going to maul. Oh, so sorry, I forgot...this time, just this once, it's all how you raise 'em. Good luck with that and build a really nice fence. Thanks.
Regulate these dogs, save them from this plight. That's your job as their stewards, Pit bull advocates, not mine. You clearly need to concern yourself more with how they are being raised, and by whom. Sic 'em!
This is a great documentary, a must see from the BBC,
My Weapon is a Dog.
