YOUR TURN: In defense of pit bulls

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Patricia Hurdle. Hurdle is unhappy about Action News 5 special report on Pit Bulls this week. She thinks the breed gets a bad rap unfairly.

In her words:

"The Problem with Pit Bulls."  I couldn't believe when I heard that title on last night's news.  I can sum it up for you in one sentence – "The bad owners they end up with."  Will you be doing a follow up story on the positive things about Pit Bulls?  This is exactly the kind of mindset that hurts us and the Pit Bulls. Some of the best dogs I have ever been around have been Pit Bulls.  I've been seriously bitten by a Chihuahua and a large mixed-breed dog.  Do you want to do a story on their problems?  It's how a dog is treated, taught and raised and unfortunately, Pit Bulls are the most abused dogs at the hands of humans. 

That's Patricia Hurdle's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210
