Pit bulls – undeserved reputation or bad dogs?

Posted July 19, 2010, at 3:14 p.m.

Pit bull enthusiasts gathered in Bangor Saturday to help dispel the breed’s reputation as aggressive, dangerous dogs. Is the public’s wariness about pit bulls a reasonable response to a history of attacks by the breed, or is it a media-induced hysteria? Are certain breeds of dogs more aggressive than other breeds? Or are the problems associated with pit bulls

the result of poorly bred, badly trained dogs?
