I read in the Pendleton Tomes in West Virginia on Thursday, 8/20/2009 where a Hardy County baby was killed by the family Pit Bull Dog. It wasn't't the dogs fault. The family knew that the dog was dangerous just from the breed, but they let it near the baby anyway. The dogs (two of them) were euthanized. When will the country learn from these constant attacks. Not all American Staffordshire Terriers are that aggressive, but still people will not learn. The County of Denver, Colorado made it illegal to own one there. That's a good thing. Now if someone wants to own one, they should be made to obtain a class 1 dangerous animal permit just as if they were keeping a Cougar or a Leopard. You don't allow these animals near children. Simple as that. Oh and by the way, there are other breeds of animals that should require special permits and regulations.
