Sad ‘sport’

November 23, 2005

To the editor,

The heartbreaking photo in the news of a pit bull with wounds from fighting is saddening and discouraging. Are there really those among us who take pleasure in such a "sport"? Our species, with its supposed superior intelligence, is capable of meting out the cruelest of treatment to the canine species. These lovely animals, innocently, would want nothing more than to be our friends and companions.

If a more effective law against this is possible, let's support it wholeheartedly!

And conversely, Miss Sarah Higgins...Why should Pit Bulls tear humans apart? they are a dangerous species and they are being trained to kill. Isn't this the crime? How many times do we hear that these animals kill adults and children?

Lets stop breeding them to kill: PERIOD!

"These lovely animals [pit bulls], innocently, would want nothing more than to be our friends and companions."

The evidence would seem to be to the contrary.
