and the problem really lies within the fact that most people CANT correctly identify a american pit bull terrier. Any dog whos big, scary and on a chain leash gets thrown into this category.
Ive seen Tons of people ask whether that german sheperd or that rotti are pitbulls....etc..
And in the news, they never say that dog that mauled that kid was 1/4 lab, 1/4 ABPT, and 1/2 rotti. Its alwasy the same story.... "it was part pit bull"
And when they dont know the breed at all...its always "part pit bull"
Im glad to see they corrected themselves...but im sure this "correction" wasn't on the front page or made nearly the impact as the first article did.
