"Responsible families don’t want a pit bull." - PETA animal care and control specialist Teresa Lynn Chagrin
According to the anti-pit bull group, pit bull attacks have increased 773 percent in seven years, “yet the public continues to be encouraged by pit bull enthusiasts…social media and TV reality shows to believe that pit bulls are safe family pets. They are not.”
PETA animal care and control specialist Teresa Lynn Chagrin reportedly said in 2012 that “responsible families don’t want a pit bull."
PETA argues its intentions are pure for the benefit of both the breed and humans, but pit bull owners and supporters are not convinced and have taken to social media to blast the organization.
"If someone proposed a ban on breeding Labrador retrievers or Chihuahuas or poodles (you get the picture – any dog), we’d be for those too. That’s because we don’t think any dogs should be brought into the world as long as millions are dying for lack of homes in animal shelters and on the streets every year," PETA states.
