When we hear of horror stories in the media our minds are made up for us without having an informed argument from both sides of the Pit Bull debate. Maligned and legislated against, these dogs need to reclaim their position of trusted symbol of American fidelity. Astonishingly, for most of our history, America’s nickname for Pit Bulls used to be “The Nanny Dog” (Lockport 2011). For many generations, if you had children and wanted to keep them safe you required a pit bull. The Pit Bull was thought of as the most reliable of any breed with children and adults.
Pit bulls were imported to America from England in the 1870’s primarily, but not exclusively, for pit fighting. Over the years dog fighting has become a huge issue in the united states and many individuals frown upon it nowadays; because Pit bulls were the number one dogs used for dog fighting, many people believe that this particular breed is the most dangerous of all breeds. In this proposal we are going to focus on the history/misconceptions of Pit bulls, and how we can lessen the fear in people and ourselves when it comes to this particular breed. From the very start Pit bulls never really had the chance to defend themselves. When brought up in the world they were taught to become baiting dogs.

The article goes on to list several other problems with these laws. They punish innocent owners and dogs, they actually encourage ownership of these breeds by outlaws and those who intend to use the dogs for violence, and they give the public a false sense of security, which could endanger a person. The ASPCA cites the CDC on some other factors that could lead to dog bites rather than just what breed a dog is. This source is scholarly and reliable. The ASPCA is a well-known and trusted organization, the claims made in this article are backed up with facts and statistics, and many of these come from another trusted organization.
If Temas does not kill the lion it will kill him and even if he friends save him from the lion he will be looked down upon for not killing the lion by himself. The reasons were different because Temas did it to impress Kileghen and so that when they are moving the cattle if a lion attempts to kill them they will kill it first. They must know how to kill the lion with know else’s help so that when it counts they can do it by themselves. He wanted to impress Kileghen so that she would not like Medoto anymore, but him instead. Jerry’s reasons were different because he did it to only prove to him that he could do it, and to prove that he could be a man and do something without his mom.
Spill her blood” (96). Jack becomes obsessed with hunting and has control over the boys because of their fear of the beast. So when told to kill the pig, they’re loyal and do so.

Nature is cruel but we don’t have to be. I wouldn’t want to have my guts ripped out by a lion. I'd much rather die in a slaughter house if it were done right," (Jackson, 2010).Although her ideas at first were hesitated upon and turned away, the owners of cattle plants quickly realized that thanks to Grandin's design the cattle hesitated less, and therefore plant efficiency improved. Grandin redesigned other elements in slaughterhouses, based on other findings from her research: cattle resist being led from bright sunlight into a darkened room, for example, do not like the color yellow, and are upset by clanking metal sounds (Temple Grandin Biography,
They provide protection, companionship and many services that make their lives much easier. Unfortunately, even these well- intended actions by pit bulls are under fire. For instance, Vietnam veteran Allen Grider resided in Aurora, Colorado with his service dog, an American Pit Bull Terrier named Precious. Because of Aurora’s breed specific legislation on pit bulls, Precious was taken away from Mr. Grider, leaving him with no one to help him with his daily needs. Mr. Grider filed a lawsuit against the city of Aurora, his case was tried, and he won.
