Once again, the media has to mention Pit Bull, even without any evidence, no picture, because people like me who can actualy tell the difference would call to make a complaint for falsley identifying the dog

This story is from last year. I believe after much scrutiny it was deemed the dog was a cattle breed mix- either way- dog has been destroyed. There was a long list of postings regarding this incident and defending breeds. Just an FYI :-)
