dc.description.abstractOver the last 30 years pit bulls have come to be perceived in the United States as dangerous and destructive animals. This thesis combines journalistic research and first hand accounts that document what pit bulls truly are as a breed and why they have become so feared in American society. After experiencing a traumatic pit bull fight, the author wanted to take a closer look at pit bulls in everyday life. This article explains and shows what makes people fearful of these dogs and the positives and the negatives of the breed. This article proves that there are many different circumstances that lead up to severe and fatal pit bull attacks and that "breed-type" has little to do with it.
