Pit Bulls are no stranger to the media. According to ASPCA.org, the thought of a pit-bull-biased-media is actually more fact than fiction. The ASPCA reports that animal control officers have admited that when they alert the media of a dog attack, news outlets have no interest unless a pit bull is involved. The problem is that pit bull attacks are sensationalized and exaggerated in the media. Accidents happen and each has its own circumstance surrounding the reasons why. Each animal should be looked at as its own being, not catagorized into a class.
