I blame the media for the recent pit bull bashing. I am disappointed that you chose to to highlight your police news article with "pit bull attack". While I understand that's exactly what it was, I would be willing to bet that there have been other local dog bites that have not make the bulletin. My niece was recently mauled by a cocker spaniel and that never made the papers or the news, for no other reason than "cocker spaniel attack" isn't as newsworthy. I own a pitbull and while taking him on walks here in Woodbury he has been attacked and bitten by several golden retrievers and even a poodle mix. Again, had that been reversed and he was the one biting I am sure it too would have made the news as a "Pit Bull" attack. Shame on you.
