Mary Burch: Pit bulls are natural born killers

February 4, 2014 

Regarding “Attack by pit bulls seriously injures Modesto woman” (Feb. 1, Page A1), about the pit bull attack on the woman walking her dog: It never ceases to amaze me of the perseverance of the ignorance of the human race, concerning the rights of humans and the rights of vicious animals. The pit bull was bred to kill; anyone who owns one eventually finds this out. If a human attacks another human, they would be put in jail on attempted murder charges.

When I read that the owner could pick up his vicious animals after a 10-day quarantine, I about dropped my morning coffee. There should be no question that these animals should be euthanized. That should have already been made the law. Anyone who thinks otherwise is playing Russian roulette with someone else’s life. I think all pit bulls should be euthanized, just as I think all known “gangbangers” should be dropped on an island so they can go about killing each other instead of killing innocent bystanders.
