Random thoughts: the dog was doing what all dogs do - protecting its owner. Considering that it appeared to be living under less-than-ideal circumstances, it's probably a miracle that the dog didn't die from the bites it gave - is it fentanyl that police officers must protect themselves from contact with? I'm just pondering what happens when a dog bites someone under the influence of lethal drugs....

The photos of the encampment show where RVs go to die.

I don't think it was changed. If you scroll back to the original post on page one, it would show the date/time and who modified it.

Short story, it was a pit bull attack on my wife and kids that led to us carrying firearms. Nobody was permanently injured, but it was the 45 minutes it took for police to show up that reminded me that I'm responsible for my families safety.

You're right. The more sensationalist title was (is) used for the actual link not the title.

“Pit bull” is why it hit the national news
Had it been a Rottweiler or German shepherd it probably wouldn’t have hit the national news

Most likely because if the owner had a Rottweiler or a German Shepherd this incident would never have happened.

That was not the case in years past; before pit bulls it was German shepherds, Dobermans, then Rottweilers. Who knows, the movie Dog may ruin malinois/Belgian shepherd by making them the next “tough dog”.

A childhood friend was seriously bit by his sister's dog when he tried to enter her bedroom. The dog was a dobie.

A neighbor dog bit their yard guy when he entered their backyard without their knowledge. The dog was a rottie. He also held me at the fenceline when I went to repair a broken slat in our joint fence.

My childhood dog got between my sibling, friend and I (all under 12 years old) and two twenty-something guys with an aggressive lab. My dog was prepared to fight that dog. My dog was a boxer.

The point being, that any dog can see fit to protect it's owner or territory from a perceived threat.

So to assume that any other breed would NOT act to protect it's owner is a bad assumption.

Also, I know a few breeds that I view potentially more dangerous and difficult to control than a pit bull. These breeds are not currently a problem because they are not popular and indiscriminately bred.
