So Far This Year; 36 Pit Bull Attacks In Cincinnati.

Attacks by pit bulls are increasing in Cincinnati. Many of the pit bull attacks are related to illicit drug and other criminal activity.

So far in 2014 there have been 36 bites involving pit bulls or pit bull mixes. By June of 2013, there were 28.

Hamilton County Health Department data show 38 bite incidents involving pit bulls or pit bull mix breeds as of May 11, 2014. The data show 74 total pit bull bite incidents reported in 2013.

There is probably more that has not been reported.

IE: If someone tries to rip off a drug dealer, then the drug dealer sics pit bulls of the thief; neither party is likely to report the crimes, because they would implicate themselves in crime.

4 pit bills were shot by Cincinnati area police last week.

Even though pit bulls have the most documented attacks on humans; dog fighters and other criminals dishonestly argue that pit bulls are less likely to bite humans because of pit bull breeding.

Cincinnati police shot and killed a pit bull Sunday night after it lunged at them.

Seriously, you are sipping on that Haterade, take your hate elsewhere.

We all get it, you hate pitbulls, but we have members here who love pitbulls so MOVE ON.

As this is a German Shepherd board, wouldn't these posts be more appropriate on an Pit Bull board?

Sounds to me like law enforcement needs to step up and reduce gang and drug activity. What's even weirder is that pit bulls can be hit or miss with liking other dogs, but are very loyal to their owners and usually like people. Imagine what these scum of the earth are doing to these dogs to get them that way and remember they can switch breeds, so one day they might not use pits, but it might be GSD's or Rotts.
