Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982696477, Perfect Paperback)Pit Bulls: Villains or Victims? exposes crippling ignorance and the roots of sadistic human behavior behind pit bull driven hysteria. The violence, cruelty, and overall bizarre mythical guesswork aimed at these dogs have done nothing to foster safety in our communities. In fact, the results have been quite the opposite. Careful study shows the undeniable correlation between animal abuse and violence against humans, including child abuse, domestic violence, homicide, and violent sexual crimes. Yet, this criminal behavior is continuously eclipsed by the overzealous persecution of what is nothing more than a dog. Even though animal abuse is known to be a precursor of violence against humans, and despite the inherent injustice of animal abuse, as a society we continue wasting valuable time and putting lives in jeopardy by targeting breeds of dogs for annihilation rather than proactively focusing on the abusers of these animals. Undesired canine behavior can generally be predicted by examining an animal s environment and care (or lack thereof). This book demonstrates that, more often than not, so-called aggression or misbehavior attributed to any breed of dog can be traced back to either an innocent misunderstanding of canine behavior or the deliberate and nefarious misdeeds of their human handlers.
