In most cases Pit Bulls are vicious and dangerous because they were trained to be. The training methods used by dog fighters cause the dog to be indiscriminate about what it attacks. Trainers will starve, beat and harass these dogs in order to make them aggressive. A dog does not understand that it may only attack other dogs when it is in the ring. (Jessica) ASPCA also states that Despite the fact that pit bulls were bred to fight with each other, early breeders took pride in producing dogs that were trustworthy and friendly to people.
Persuasive Speech I. Introduction: A. Story The image the general public has about pit bulls is based on media bias and pure myth. They are not the monsters the media would have us believe. Of course we hear stories of pit bulls attacking people, but the same is true of all other breeds.
The jaws of pit bulls have absolutely no unique locking mechanism and function entirely the same as every other dog breed. Another myth is that pit bulls attack more than any other breed and that makes them dangerous. I offer the following responses: First of all, pit bulls are one of the most popular breeds, so it makes sense that the frequency of attacks would correlate in such a manner. Secondly, pitbulls do not inherently attack more than any other breed. Pit bulls may attack often, but this may just be because they are trained to do so.
Many statistics and stories state that the pit bull is an extremely aggressive breed and should be banned throughout the entire U.S. The problem is, not every Pit Bull is aggressive. There are copious amounts of stories and statistics that show the complete opposite; pit bulls are a happy and loyal breed and that good dogs, regardless of breed, stem from good owners. The bottom line, breed specific legislation should be put to a stop due to lack of evidence that Pit Bulls are aggressive
Dog fighting has finally become a priority to America’s local and federal law enforcement. It has since the 1800s in one form or another. Pit bulls have always been in the star light for dog fighting because of their perceived aggressive behavior. Pit bulls are actually the opposite of how they are perceived. I am going to be discussing pit bulls and facts about the dogs themselves and facts about dog fighting.
The main issue here is if they are safe or not, and if they were former dog fighter should they deserve a second chance or do they pose a threat that they have to be euthanized. Connective/ Preview: So I would like to show you the two major issues which are if pit bulls are safe or not and if they were dog fighters should they deserve a second chance or not? Body I. One issue is whether pit bulls are safe to the public or not A. Those who would like to ban the American Pit bull argue that they are not safe.
In this analysis paper I will analyze the credibility of the video and the author, how pathos, ethos, and logos are used for both the rhetoric and visual part, identify the audience, and how effective the video was to get their message across. The American Pit Bull Terriers’ image has changed drastically over time. The Pit Bull went from being America’s favorite breed to the most feared. Pit Bulls attract violent and abusive owners who use them for fighting and don’t provide the love and care a Pit Bull needs. According to a 2006 study from the Journal of Interpersonal Violence owners of dogs considered “vicious” like the Pit Bull were more likely to have criminal convictions of aggressive crimes, drugs, alcohol, domestic violence, and firearms.
They think different. They act different’ emphasises that they are not the same as everyone in society. Juror 10 compares the people from the slum as animals ‘They breed like animals’ which builds up to a metaphor ‘they are wild animals’. Juror 10 doesn’t believe in a fair trial ‘I don’t give a goddamn about the law’ he just wants the defendant to be prosecuted because he is one of ‘them’ which is unjust. Numbering of jurors rather than naming them as individuals emphasises that they are meant to be objective.
Others that are pro-BSL and/or have been strongly affected by these dangerous dogs say that there is not enough done to keep the general public safe from these vicious animals and that there needs to be harsher laws. BSL is something many Animal lovers and dog owners are strongly against but not so much for reasons one may think. Many dog owners think there should be something done about dangerous dogs but the confiscation, destruction, and racial profiling of family pets should not be a way to do it. The only way to truly identify what breed a dog is would be by a blood test. But because of costs many legislators have created a checklist for Animal control and police officers to follow to identify dogs.
