What a touching and inspirational story, and what a brave, motivated little girl to move forward with such enthusiasm after such a horrible emotional and physical attack! Pit Bulls are instinctively vicious and should be caged or chained at all times, but the owners of these unpredictable animals should seriously consider a tamer, kinder animal for a "pet".
I believe it will take at least 10 more generations of Pit Bulls to genetically rid them of the genetic impulse to attack and kill. That may not even be enough. In the meantime, all Pit Bull owners should keep these ferocious animals at bay. There's even one account in NY where the owner's two pit bulls she had for several years turned on her and killed her just outside her apartment in a hallway.
Pit Bulls are, at this point, a menace to society, and anyone encountering one, no matter how "sweet" they may seem at first, should protect themselves at all costs!
