World renowned dog whisperer, Cesar Millan, says that the humans are committing genocide against the pit bull breed of dogs. “Our ignorance level is growing way too out of proportion, to the point that we believe that getting rid of a breed is a solution,” said Milan. “Genocide. It’s a genocide,” he added.

On April 18, National Geographic’s “Nat Geo Wild” will be presenting the television special “Love My Pit Bull,” where Millan examines the ways that the human species has failed pit bulls and dogs who resemble pit bulls. Some of the areas that will be addressed in the show will be dog fighting, widespread neglect and abuse, laws restricting ownership, media sensationalism, and euthanasia.

Too many people claim to say that they love animals, yet they eat, and wear the skins of some animals, and have others euthanized because they are inconvenient, or are no longer useful to them. Unfortunately, pit bulls fall into the inconvenient category as many have become aggressive as a result of unscrupulous breeders and irresponsible owners. Pit bulls often attract the kind of dog owners who are only interested in these dogs for fighting or protection. “We say we love dogs. We can’t just say we love certain kinds of dogs. Otherwise, let’s just say we love some dogs. Let’s not say we are a nation of dog lovers,” said Millan.

Pit bulls by nature are not aggressive dogs, and can make ideal family companions if raised in a loving home. Any dog that is treated with cruelty, and trained to be aggressive can become a danger to society. Millan says that “[i]t is not just pit bulls who behave aggressive. It’s Chihuahuas who behave aggressive. It’s Dalmatians who behave aggressive. So what I’m saying is aggression is a state of mind not a breed.”

Even if the breed is eliminated, people who train these dogs to become aggressive will just move on to another breed of dog. “We take responsibility. We no longer blame the elephant and the shark and the tiger, and in this case, the dog. We humans have to take responsibility for how we influence instability, how we create instability,” said Millan. “The most dangerous thing on the planet is an ignorant humankind,” said Millan.

    Give me a break. Pit bulls aren’t even close to reaching a stage where they will be eliminated.

    • Carlisle Hall

      Unfortunately.

    • SUSAN BEERS

      The only ones who needs to be eliminated are all you evil sadistic PIT BULL haters

  • BOKEEKEEYO

    ‘Genocide’ is a little over the top, but anti ‘pit bull’ hysteria is 100 times more stupid than any exaggeration in Milan’s statement.

  • Carlisle Hall

    Obviously, Cesar Millan didn’t learn anything in that third-rate Mexican school he attended. The word “genocide” did not enter the English language until 1944 and the definition is “the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political or cultural group.” So please tell us, Ceasar, to which “racial, political or cultural group” do DOGS belong?

    • Tina

      Carlisle Hall your a dog hater obviously by your photo. So take your hate somewhere else.

      • Itstheglass

        He wouldn’t be criticizing Milan if he didn’t like dogs. (BTW you can’t “hate” an animal as it doesn’t posses the complex thought contexts which you could disagree with on such an emotional level). Even if one disliked dogs, which he doesn’t, that’s a “no pit bulls” symbol, it has nothing to do with what he said. If you can’t comprehend what someone is saying and respond, then maybe you need to do something more your speed, like coloring books or listening to pre-teen heart-throbs. Lastly, pit bulls aren’t “pet” dogs, they are purpose-bred fighting dogs that, as a group killed an estimated 43,000 other pets, farm and livestock animals, in addition to maiming, mauling, dismembering untold hundreds if not thousands and killing dozens of people last year. Can’t wrap your brain around that? Don’t care? Coloring books dear. Get back to us when you grow up.

      • Tina

        Itstheglass, Thank you, but I am way past coloring books. I am very much grown up, your not talking to a pre teen heart throb. I am a mother of 2 adult children, and a wife for 29 years. So please do not try to make me out as if I am child who knows nothing. I have owned a Pit Bull for 9 years. I went to dog training per the contract I signed when I adopted her at 3 months of age. She was easy to train, and is at level 10. I still go to dog training with her, not because we have to but because we want to, I love the the knowledge that I have learned about dogs, and Ruby enjoys the training, working and socializing. I also help train dogs, and the people that own dogs. My dog school teacher use’s my Pit Bull for demonstrations as well, as Ruby is very balanced, calm, and non confrontational. All the people who have met my Pit Bull love her. She is non confrontational, has never bit anyone or anything, she would even hurt a rat when she came nose to nose with it, unlike my Jack Russell that killed the rat instantly. My dog has been charged & bitten by many different breeds of dogs (little to large), but she has never gotten into a fight with another dog. Pit Bulls are dogs, dogs that like any dog can end up in the wrong hands. I have done my research, and plenty of it. I have my own mind I do not need the Media to manipulate me with all their negative propaganda. And No I am not a liar, I am an honest law bidding citizen thank you.

      • Carlisle Hall

        “… your [sic] not talking to a pre teen [sic] heart throb [sic].” If you’re not a preteen, stop writing like someone who hasn’t finished elementary school!

      • SUSAN BEERS

        Well said PIT BULL’S are wonderful dog’s and very intelligent easy to train and extremely loving

      • SUSAN BEERS

        Go fuck yourself you idiotic morons now nothing about PIT BULL’S enough said

      • MJC

        Obviously, he knows enough to avoid them — unlike you!

      • Carlisle Hall

        If you don’t like my post, DELETE IT! I assume you own the site because, otherwise, you wouldn’t be telling me not to post here. You’re probably in Mexico and I do not know what the laws are down there, but in the United States, people are free to hate anything they choose and that includes DOGS!

      • Tina

        Interesting how you assume I live in Mexico. Curious why you would think I live in Mexico? You can hate all you like, and you are totally entitled to your opinionI. As I have stated before my comments are for people with open minds.

      • MJC

        He didn’t say you “live in Mexico.” Being “in Mexico” and living in Mexico are two entirely different things. If you will actually read what he said instead of jumping to conclusions, you will see he thinks you’re Canadian.

      • Tina

        Interesting how you seem to think I am from Mexico, why is that? I do not live in Mexico, and I am not Mexican either. Your choice to hate dog’s is totally up to you, I don’t care if you hate dog’s. But I will still let the people with open minds have a chance to hear good story’s about Pit Bull’s. If they choose to read it and believe it that is their choice. But at least they get a choice not just a one sided slander from Dog Haters.

      • Carlisle Hall

        I did not say you were Mexican, I said you’re “probably in Mexico.” In fact, I don’t think you’re Mexican because you write much more like a white trash Canuck than a Mexican.

      • Tina

        :-) Happy, Happy Day to you as well. Please do not get swallowed up in your hatred.

      • SUSAN BEERS

        You rock Tina

      • SUSAN BEERS

        I think you hate yourself as well

      • Carlisle Hall

        Your brain is too addled from breathing all those gas fumes as a result of having your nose stuck up your dog’s rear end to “think.”

      • SUSAN BEERS

        Your right tina he sure is he’s a sadistic moron

    • Itstheglass

      Thank you Carlisle Hall. That’s around the period when Cesar’s “understanding”of dogs originated as well. I wonder if he still thinks we’re fighting the Japanese?

  • Ldennison

    Some of you guys, are really focusing on the wrong thing here, criticizing someone’s heritage or choice of words they use in trying to make us as people to understand what we are doing to the animals we claim to Love so much, As much as you may criticize the fact remains that Mr. Millan is absolutely correct about what he says about the way we treat this particular breed. Pit bulls are awesome dogs we(people) need not to be ignorant about how to live with them

    • Carlisle Hall

      If he’s going to spout ignorance in the United States, then he needs to spout it in proper English!

      • SUSAN BEERS

        By the way I watched all those videos.I was shocked couldn’t believe my eyes.Cesar is abusing dog’s it totally changed my opinion on Cesar but I do now that not all pit bull’s are vicious and all breeds of dog’s have it in them to be viciously aggressive

    • Susan Beers

      I HAVE TWO AMERICAN PIT BULL’S AND THERE THE BEST AND WHY PEOPLE ARE SO IGNORANT AND VERY HATEFUL TOWARDS THEM IS DEFINITELY APPALLING THESE DOG’S ARE LIKE ALL OTHER DOG’S THEY WANT TO LOVE YOU AND TO BE LOVED BACK BUT SADLY THE WRONG PEOPLE ARE GETTING THEM AND MAKING PIT BULL’S LOOK BAD CAUSE OF THE WAY THEY TRAIN AND TREAT THE PIT BULL’S IN AN EVIL HATEFUL MANNER IT’S NOT THE PIT BULL’S FAULT IT’S THE HUMAN MONSTERS OF THE HUMAN RACE THAT’S MAKING IT BAD ON PIT BULL’S

      • Travelmate

        Honey, your caps lock is stuck. retype it without caps lock and maybe I’ll read it.

      • Susan Beers

        Ok sorry about that

      • Itstheglass

        No, no need to correct her, I’m sure that’s how she talks.

      • Carlisle Hall

        She’s attempting to disguise all her grammatical errors. Look at what she typed: “I have two pit bull’s [sic] and there [sic] the best and why people are so ignorant and very hateful ….” as her comment deteriorates into total nonsense.

      • SUSAN BEERS

        First of all you never owned a pit bull.And second of all you believe all the pathetic lies you hear and read.I’ll tell you this my pit bull’s are better then you any day.Your an insane.

      • Carlisle Hall

        To Susan Beers (aka “Guest”): I’ve never been acquainted with an Islamic terrorist either, but their past actions have convinced me they’re dangerous. A person doesn’t need to have “owned a pit bull,” all they have to do is read the news and see how many people these land sharks scalp, dismember, otherwise badly injure and kill to know pit bulls are DANGEROUS!

      • Carlisle Hall

        Do you think by posting in all caps your grammatical errors will be less noticeable?

      • SUSAN BEERS

        Wow you are a very hateful person

      • Jaloney Caldwell

        Hateful is ignoring the plight of victims. My dog is very old and will be helped to cross over this week. It is very traumatic. Imagine the trauma of enjoying a walk or day in the yard with your dog and suddenly a pitbull breaks in the yard and attacks and kills your dog and you listen and watch it get shredded into pieces. You are powerless to stop the attack. Put your self in the shoes of thousands of people who have lost their pets suddenly and horrifically to pitbulls. Then make a jump and put yourself in shoes of person that has a loved one suddenly mauled to death by a pitbull. Think about their feelings and then repeat that for ten years while pitbull advoctates continue to whine that its the owner not the breed, but no laws are put in place to punish the owners adequately to provide any reasonable deterrent to this traumatic event. Other dogs and people count just as much as your dogs. You don’t have a solution and I would say you are the hateful person if you don’t HATE what is happening to these people. You and I both know that other types of dogs are easer for people to stop during an attack. No break sticks are recommended or needed. Pitbull advocacy is watching pitbulls die due to constant overbreeding, and watching people and pets be horrifically attacked and NOTHING is changing. In fact the problem is getting worse. If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem and It is not every humans fault for making pitbulls evil. They were bred to be strong, tenacious fighters and that breeding cannot be undone. It makes them much more dangerous to keep as pets. In fact female owned pitbulls are resulting in a lot of the fatalities to children as the females can’t get the dog to let go. The pain and suffering these families go through that lose a child is life long and unbearable. Preventing that loss is about LOVE not hate.

      • newsjunkieal

        There’s not a person on this whole thread more hateful than you are – attacking every single person on here who does not like pit bulls. I haven’t cared for pit bulls since a neighbor’s pit bull attacked a teenaged kid in my neighborhood as he was walking home from a friend’s house. The dog spent a lot of time menacing the neighborhood prior to that. Some people don’t like chihuahua’s. Some people don’t like pit bulls. Disliking a type of dog doesn’t make people “sadistic morons”. What are you, like 5 years old? People don’t have to like the same kind of dogs as you do to be okay. People are free to their own opinions. The world does not revolve around yours.

      • calgarth

        Better watch how, before long, all the pitwits will be accusing you of being “Jason Fraser.”

      • Carlisle Hall

        What’s “hateful” about letting you know your posts are so full of grammatical errors it’s difficult to understand what you’re howling about? Instead of posting nonsense about pit bulls, you should be somewhere taking a class in English grammar!

    • Jaloney Caldwell

      Cesar Milan is PAID a Kings ransom to promote pitbulls.. Sorry Charlie. He knows as many dog that saying he is against pitbulls would get him pulled off the air, but promoting them is a money train.

      There is a reason
      they are not paying stars to promote poodles on t.v. When dog fighting was
      legal, no one incuding dog fighters promoted pitbulls as pets. After
      the government made dog fighting illegal they spent millions on a public relations campaign to popularize the breed so
      they can hide their vicious and sadistic “sport” in plain sight. “Stars” are paid a lot to peddle
      pitbulls on t.v. just like big tobacco used stars to promote cigerettes. Pitbull owners are duped. They are the pawns
      of wealthy dog fighters that don’t care about victims or pitbulls. Every pitbull owned helps hide dog
      fighters. We have a sea of one million
      overbred unwanted pitbull euthanized each year in the USA. There is a billion
      dollar untaxed economy surrounding pitbull dog fighters. Pitbull owners should know that their choice
      helps a pitbull die in a fight pit everyday.
      Pitbull owners are supporting dog fighters. This is all about greed and money$$$$$$$$$$

      dupe (dp, dyp)

  • Travelmate

    You can’t claim to love animals and promote the one kind of dog that was bred to kill its own kind and anything else it can get its jaws on for no reason and kills thousands of normal pets each year. And you know who is causing about 40 million pounds of dead pit bulls each year? People who profess to love the maulers and who breed almost a million pit bulls each year that will just be euthanized in the next few months.

        Jaloney: You know nothing about anything and should be muzzled. We are fighting a civil rights war, and YOU are on the wrong side of history. One day people will look back on you and your kind the way they do on Nazis today.

      • Tina

        I own a Pit Bull, she is 9 years old. She is well balanced well trained. She has never had puppies, she has never had a dog fight and I am a total Pit Bull Advocate, and the only thing I can say about dog fighters is they deserve to die, as they are the problem not the breed.

      • Carlisle Hall

        Well, bully for you! — not that anyone believes the garbage you posted!

      • Tina

        I could give a rats ass if you believe me or not, my post was a reply to another person’s comment, not really for that person either. But other people with open minds read these comments and my reply was for them, not you closed simple minded people. I lost 1 good friend due to her closed simple mind when I adopted my Pit Bull, but I gained more knowledge about dogs in my 9 years of dog training, and 4 awesome best friends by adopting my Pit Bull. Not to mention the numerous other friends I have met through dog school, all of who LOVE my Pit Bull. In fact tonight at dog school Level 1 Puppy class I had my trained Level 10 Pit Bull there doing demo work, after class it was puppy play time. All 3 puppies wanted to play with my 9 year old Pit Bull, and All the owners were delighted with her behaviour even though she was being bomb barded with over zealous puppies, not one growl or a snap out of her. I am ONE PROUD PIT BULL OWNER thank you :-) Oh and again this is for the people who have an opened mind rather than a closed simple minds. Have an awesome night. :-)

      • Carlisle Hall

        You really need to extract your nose from your pit bull’s rear end and come up for a breath of fresh air. I realize pit bull owners are from the lowest echelons of society, but your writing skills are on a par with those of a third-grader in special education classes. BTW, vulgarity and profanity are indicative of a limited vocabulary and your dog LOVE is illegal in most civilized countries.

      • Tina

        as usual you obstinate haters always come back with our best saying “your writing skills, you spelling, or grammar BS” who cares if I make some writing errors I am not trying to write a book :-) As far as my vulgarity & profanity goes …. really ….. 1 small ASS word shows that I have a limited vocabulary? Just curious beside’s owning a Pit Bull how do you judge that a person is the lowest echelons of society? Because if you really knew anything about me, you would know I am definitely not the lowest’s echelons of society. How is caring for dogs illegal in most civilized countries? Would be very interested in knowing what countries have laws saying it is illegal to care for dogs. What country or planet are you from? I do live in a civilized country, in a small civilized city, where not only owning and caring for a dog is legal, but so is owning a Pit Bull.

      • Carlisle Hall

        For Chris’ sake, woman, can’t you write a single sentence without it sounding like something written by a second-grader?

        One of the ways we judge whether a person is from “the lowest echelons of society” is by the way he or she writes. Also, pit bulls are the white trash dog of choice.

        I didn’t say anything about “caring for dogs.” It’s the “manner” in which some of you losers “care for dogs” that is illegal. You’re even more ignorant than I imagined.

      • Tina

        :-) Happy, Happy Day to you as well. Please do not get swallowed up in your hatred. :-)

      • Carlisle Hall

        You’ve expressed a LOT more “hate” in your comments than have I.

      • SUSAN BEERS

        Oh no you showed more hatefulness then anyone of us put together

      • Carlisle Hall

        “… then anyone of us put together.” Like I said, Tina, you really need to sign up for that course in English grammar!

      • SUSAN BEERS

      • Carlisle Hall

        What a ridiculous comment! You’re the one disobeying God by wallowing around with dogs. If you want to know what God thinks of dogs, read Rev. 22:15.

      • Craig Melioni

        Ah, now I get it. You are certifiably insane. I didn’t realize you were one of those Jesus lovers. Yes, believing in an “immaculate” conception and that some dude died on a cross for the sins of humanity isn’t insane. Not one bit.

        P.S. by the way when did we join a caste system ? and yet you continue to offer nothing but unsubstantiated claims.

        Norman Reedus,Kaley Cuoco, Torry Smith, Lake Bell, Danny Trejo, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Bacon, Josh Hutcherson, Tom Brady, Jessica Biel to name a few white trash dog of choice ? humm 4.5 million registered and half as many unregistered pit and cross type dogs love your generalities …

      • Carlisle Hall

        A few so-called “celebrities” adopt pit bulls for the publicity. This still doesn’t change the fact pit bulls are the white trash dog of choice. A person doesn’t need “credentials” to express an opinion. If you’re not interested in my opinions, STOP READING MY POSTS!

      • John Zolis

        You’re anecdotal biased opinions continue, what I find hilarious is that you capitalize your comment like it will have some emphasis on my behaviour ! Your opinions are nothing but spewed hatred for some 7,000,000 plus animals…

      • Craig Melioni

        We’re dealing an ill-educated and mentally unstable individual who has more than 10 different screennames, all exclusively devoted to the genocide and torture of canines. Al of them are private accounts. And he will engage in “conversations” between his screennames acting as though he’s creating a consensus from a plurality of voices, when in fact it’s just some crazy dude smoking meth and collecting welfare checks from his crack house. The fact that he’s a Bible freak makes more sense to me now. I’m glad I saw this thread.

      • Craig Melioni

        Right. White trash dog of choice. Tell that to my uncle with a Princeton degree who bred them for more than a decade. Jason Fraser, your arguments are comically irrelevant.

      • calgarth

        Jason Fraser? Not too long ago, some pitwit accused me of being “Jason Fraser.” It would be convenient for pitwits like you if everyone who hated pit bulls was Jason Fraser because then only one person in the US would be a pit bull hater!

      • SUSAN BEERS

        You are extremely evil if anyone or anything needed euthanized it’s clearly you

      All breeders are in the wrong. Until there are no more animals in shelters, breeding should be a crime, period. Go educate yourself before you speak publicly again, because you are contributing to racism and genocide with every word. Substitute ‘women’ or ‘blacks’ in every ignorant comment on this page and attempt to think for yourself for once, and perhaps you’ll see what I mean.

  • Joanna McGinn

    Only because they are the killers of humans, other animals and livestock. THIS is a breed that was BRED TO KILL ,… and Millan makes his LIVING off them despite that even HE can’t control them… does this sound like a dog that should be a ‘pet’ or even living in a neighborhood.

    Here’s what Cesar Millan said this about the pit bull type dogs:

    “Yeah, but this is a different breed…the power that comes behind the bull dog, pit bull, presa canario, the fighting breed – They have an extra boost, they can go into a zone, they don’t feel the pain anymore. … So if you are trying to create submission in a fighting breed, it’s not going to happen. They would rather die than surrender. If you add pain, it only infuriates them…to them pain is that adrenaline rush, they are looking forward to that, they are addicted to it… That’s why they are such great fighters. Especially with fighting breeds, you’re going to have these explosions over and over because there’s no limits in their brain.”.

    Cesar Millan is an animal abuser and is a hypocrite for ever saying anything that acts as if he cares about animals. He makes me money by having a show that is fake and phony to how he really treats animals. Look at this fingers embedded in this dogs neck to keep it still. He disgusts me. If you don’t believe this, then look him up on youtube and type in Cesar Millans animal cruelty. This man is sick and is getting paid to hurt animals behind the camera.

    • martha

      well then, i assume your dogs are as happy as his? oh, or you don’t even own one yet bash someone who has many?

      • Itstheglass

    • Susan Beers

        You need to take an elementary school refresher course and this time, take a course in English!

      • John Zolis

        So because this person made spelling and grammar errors their opinions are irrelevant ?

      • Carlisle Hall

        This person’s “opinions are irrelevant” because she’s an idiot!

      • John Zolis

        Like I said before your intellectual prowess is far from impressive …. I also find it hilarious that you correct other people for their grammar and spelling and yet in your subsequent comment make an error yourself – yea without sin cast the first stone ! Last time I checked john is a male name in any culture and your use of “her” is in error !
        Your singular comment of idiot as disproved in other threads is beyond boring …

      • John Zolis

        Unlike your anecdotal responses and biased opinions I actually state substantiated facts !

    • Tina

      Cesar Millan is far from being an animal abuser Natalee K. Your statement is ridiculous. Dogs that are unbalanced or not well trained can be dangerous, dogs need balance, structure, calmness, exercise, love, but most of all dogs need to know BOUNDARIES right & wrong (black & white). you people who think that all dogs can be treated the same way or trained the same way are out of your mind, some dogs are more challenging than other dogs and these dogs must Know who is the Pack Leader, and it doesn’t mean beating them. I have used the back end kick, my foot is my 3rd hand as I have 2 dogs which I walk. If my voice is not enough to snap or correct my dogs behaviour than they get a foot correction. It snaps their brain out of where it is, and they look at me. I have never kicked my dog in a manner that caused them pain, it is a firm touch, not a boot across the road.

    • Itstheglass

      You’re correct Natalee K. It’s plain as day, but some people need help to see it. First, they need to understand that dogs are animal companions, not wolf pack subordinates. Actually that’s a misnomer too as wolves are families, not ruled by fear but cooperation. And turning the sound off when watching him helps in that you aren’t misled by his false and made up training “explanations”. If that’s not enough, I saw a video of a former assistant who admitted it’s all fake; they abuse the dogs to get the “before” shots, then it takes them forever to get the “after” shots where his techniques magically transform and amaze. He single-handedly set back dog training 30 years.

    Cesar
    Millan quote unquote: “Yeah, but this is a different breed…the power that comes
    behind the bull dog, pit bull, presa
    canario, the fighting breed – They have an extra boost, they can go into a
    zone, they don’t feel the pain anymore. … So if you are trying to create
    submission in a fighting breed, it’s not going to happen. They would rather die
    than surrender. If you add pain, it only infuriates them…to them pain is that
    adrenaline rush, they are looking forward
    to that, they are addicted to it… That’s why they are such great fighters.”. He
    goes on to say: “Especially with fighting breeds, you’re going to have these
    explosions over and over because there’s no limits in their brain.”

    The pitbull you have today might be the monster that kills
    tomorrow. Not every animal behaviorists is a sell out to the wealthy dog
    fighter promoted pitbull lobby! Words from a world reknown animal behaviorist
    and evolutionary biologist that isn’t a
    sell out to the wealthy dog fighters:
    I’ve seen many pit bull puppies that
    have seemed fine until their sixth or seventh month, at which point they
    suddenly tried to kill a playmate they’d been fine with until then. And so on,
    including family pit bulls that suddenly killed a child or an adult owner at
    the age of five or eight years. The bad wiring can’t be detected in the pitbulls
    first six months of life, — or at any time until the pit bull has been
    cremated. There is no training that will
    counteract genetically determined behaviors SEE
    Heritability-of-Behavior-in-the-Abnormally-Aggressive-Dog-by-A-Alexandra
    Semyonova on scrib dot com.

    Several of the genesinvolved in this sudden, pathological aggression have been identified.
    The differences in brain structure and chemistry that they cause are clear
    (training doesn’t fix deviant brain structures). The mechanism — why the genes
    activate when they do — hasn’t been figured out yet.

    • SUSAN BEERS

      Your so wrong I never had a bad pit bull don’t get me wrong there are bad pits but there made that way by wrong irresponsible people

      • Jaloney Caldwell

        Yep and alcohol kills when irresponsible people use it.. We can’t keep watching people and pets die. And your personal experience doesn’t mean you won’t ever have a bad pitbull. So many owners have suddenly had a very bad experience with pitbulls that they loved and cared for like any other dog, including relatives of mine that had their dog attack them after 8 years of normal behavior. It is very egotistical to think that your personal experience represents all realities. Going back to the alcohol analogy.. some people don’t get addicted to alcohol as easily as they carry different Genes, but that same substance is very addictive to Native Americans and others. It is family raised unabused pitbulls that turn on a dime and kill. Remember Darla Napora?

  • Itstheglass

    Pit bulls aren’t inconvenient, they are the most dangerous class of dog in circulation; an artificial breed of animal bred for killing, as it still does. Show me a mature pit bull that hasn’t killed anything yet and I’ll show you a liar or a string of liars vouching for it. The bottom line is it’s a product like any animal bred for purpose, not a people or a race, and no one has the right to own any animal. This entitlement hysteria is way over the top. The only difference between this dog and any other is unscrupulous people, Milan included, who stand to lose only what’s important to them personally, not to society, and it has nothing to do with animals or people… it’s only about them. Proof in point, what do all these people have to say about any other dog or animal other than pit bulls, let alone the victims of pit bulls? Nothing! If anything at all it’s hateful, dismissive and distracts them from their unnatural, narcissistic fixation, Milan included. Admittedly his life’s ambition has been to be famous… most normal people want to help make the world a better place, but that’s his ruse, and he’s most charming about it. They usually don’t understand or care what’s right or wrong, only that the consequences of their actions and words get them what they want, in his case to keep the money train rolling and the crowd idolizing. Maybe he’s in that one tenth of a percent of dog owners that can handle a pit bull in his back yard, along with dog fighters, but all of his “expertise” is based on being a farm hand, a dog walker, his personal anecdotal experience, his personal opinion, a referral from a hollywood celebrity, some coaching as a reality celebrity and the support of bad-dog owners who needed an “expert” to cannonize. Anything beyond that is just more pandering to the fiercely loyal customers, pushing a product they can sell them, and that includes the ASPCA, animal shelters, rescues, “pit bull friendly” trainers, book writers, club organizers, and that wonderful feeling of manic acceptance into the family of like-minded (aka gang). My best suggestion for these people is to get the cobwebs out of their brain, get a hobby, partake in an acceptable activity or sport, and for everyone’s sake get a normal dog.

    • SUSAN BEERS

      I’m sorry you feel that way my two PIT BULL’S are 3years old and neither one of them bit or attacked or killed anyone including animals I now there are definitely bad and extremely aggressive PIT BULL’S out there but punishing all PIT BULL’S for what those extremely aggressive PIT BULL’S did is wrong there’s wrong people getting PIT BULL’S and severely abusing and training them to fight and kill when there born they are not mean mistreating them starving them ectmakes them mean .I rescued a PIT BULwith the help of the police now CHEYANNE had every reason to hate humans for what this guy did to her he beat her with a 2 x 4 he broke her jaw and ribs she had deep flesh wounds and he killed 6of her puppies the vet gave her a 25% chance to survive and she did to she weighed only ones 20 pounds I was amazed at how she forgave humans and she loved everyone she meet and my NAKITA she thinks she’s to protect all kids she’ll run to defend kids when she thinks there being hurt

    • John Zolis

      4.5 million registered pit and pit crosses with at least half that unregistered…. your points are erroneous… get educated… (show me a pitbull that hasn’t killed) seriously your a moron ! in the worst year ever 36 people died by all dog bites, lets compare that to the 250 children under 5 that die in bathtubs, or the 1200 that die in cars due to drunk driving get a life idiot !

  • Carlisle Hall

    I cannot decide which of the pit bulls in that photo is the ugliest, the one on the right or the one in the middle.

    • SUSAN BEERS

      There not ugly but on the other hand you definitely are both inside and out

      • newsjunkieal

        Why won’t you allow others to have opinions without attacking them? Sheesh. Why don’t you spend your time advocating for responsible pit bull ownership so there will a lot less pit bull maulings and killings of people and children instead of attacking and insulting those who are affected by those maulings and killings?

      • SUSAN BEERS

        I’m sorry about your neighborhood teenager I get on the defensive cause I own two pit bull’s and there actually certified therapy dog’s again I’m sorry about my insults on all of you and I agree there are dangerously aggressive pit bull’s out there but punishing the whole breed is to extreme my two are dangerously 3years old and never hurt anyone or anything NAKITA she thinksit’s her job to protect all kids she’ll run to defend kids when she thinks there being hurt I teach my pits from when there puppies to be gentle and to not approach anyone unless they want to see them but what really got me pissed was all you attacking me for how I worded thing’s and you’ll won’t be getting replys from me anymore cause I’m unsubscribing

      • Carlisle Hall

        Like I said below, Susan Beers, you need to take a course in English grammar. You can’t type a single sentence without making an unforgivable error. You write like an elementary school dropout!

        All three of the pit bulls in the photo are UGLY! I was simply attempting to decide which was the ugliest — nothing wrong with that.

        BTW, why are you calling yourself “Guest,” Susan Beers? Your posts are easy to pick out because no one else makes as many grammatical errors as you do!

    • John Zolis

      How about you post a picture of yourself ? Just curious if your appearance is as distasteful as your opinions ? I am truly amazed at the effort you spend on various posts spreading your hatred ! You must lead a very insignificant shallow life.

      • Carlisle Hall

        Anything outside your dog’s rear end is “distasteful” to pit nutters like YOU because that’s where your nose is permanently affixed!

      • John Zolis

        Your comment is moronic and your rebuttal is non existent.

      • MJC

        On the contrary, he’s done an excellent job rebutting the nonsense posted by you and the other pitwits.

      • John Zolis

        Obviously as educated as your counterpart ( carlisle) ! Anytime you feel like you can argue your case without slanderous comments and biased unsubstantiated remarks feel free ! personally I have yet to find a single person who can …

      • Craig Melioni

        Counterpart? You haven’t realized it’s the same person? This dude is nuts!

      • calgarth

        Why is it that people who defend pit bulls accuse everyone who disagrees with them of being the same person?

      • John Zolis

        I also find it hilarious that those with a discriminatory position are either anonymous or hidden ( take for example your other comments 646 comments yet your position is private )

    • MJC

      Definitely the one in the middle!

  • Brenda Grant

    By previous comments, Cesar has demonstrated full knowledge of the difference in fighting breed dogs. Now he chooses to deny the existence of breed traits, and infer that people that understand this difference are akin to nazis. This shows conscious intent to deceive. So more young woman will bring home a pit bull and manage it with the same level of safety as a poodle…no surprise people and pets are being mauled and killed on a daily basis. I don’t see him as loving all dogs when he’s mass promoting a breed that is killing tens of thousand of dogs annually. And Cesar, it is not dalmations, chihuahuas, elephants or sharks that are killing everyday in suburban America.

    • SUSAN BEERS

      Poodles chilhuahuas bite more people then PIT BULLS and in temperament testing pit bull’s are second place for good temperaments they scored 86.9 they did better than Poodles and chihuahuas

      • Brenda Grant

        Lol, who cares if poodles or chihuahuas bite more or not…they don’t maul or kill people or pets. There is no test that can predict impulse aggression; many pit bulls passed this test both before and after randomly attacking.

      • SUSAN BEERS

        That’s true I just think it’s wrong to punish the whole breed cause responsible owner’s now there dog’s and train and teach there pits to behave and socialize them around people and animals all dog’s have it in them to be aggressive

  • Christina Gens

    of course it is genocide… but I think we’re just good at that… time to learn other skills !
