Pitbulls Kill 9 Year-Old Boy ~by Legal Pub

After repeated Pit Bull attacks, why do people trust these animals?  U.S. fatal pit bull attacks have surpassed 260 since 1998; the last year the CDC studied fatal dog attack data by breed. In the last 8-year period of the CDC study (1991 to 1998), pit bulls averaged nearly 3 deaths per year. From 2007 to 2014, the most recent 8-year period, pit bulls averaged 21 deaths per year, a 600% increase.
"Don't make this about Pit Bulls", Legal Pub was warned.  Despite the warning, Pitt Bull owners are still faced with trying to answer the question, why do these dogs continue to be trusted as pets?
Alexandria Griffin-Heady left her 9-year old half brother alone in her trailer home with her three pit bulls.  Alexandria went to work, when she returned her brother 9-year-old Tyler Trammell-Huston had been mauled."I failed him, whether it's my fault, my dogs' fault, whoever's fault. I wanted to protect him, and I wanted to give him an amazing life,"  said Griffin-Heady to FOX40.  Griffin-Heady never thought that would happen. Her brother had played with the dogs and even laid on the bed with them.  And so goes the story.  Pit Bull pet suddenly turned killer.
She discovered her brother unresponsive with significant wounds.  911 was called but Tyler was dead by the time he arrived at the hospital.  How  much more madness can be tolerated?

Truly tragic.

I think it has more to do with the people that own them than the breed itself...This breed was designed to guard and attack so one must be diligent with controlling them. I had a pit bull for a few years and it never attacked anyone (My sister could no longer have the dog at her new residence). It wanted too, especially other dogs. All I had to do was give a firm verbal "NO" command and he would calm down.
