Having witnessed a pit bull kill another smaller dog when merely approached, and having read about some of the statistics, I am advising any apartment building owner or residential co-op Board to prohibit the pit bull breed from the premises.
The American pit bull terrier has been selectively bred for aggressive behavior. The pit bull constitutes only 3 percent of the dog population, yet disproportionately accounts for 33 percent of dog bites.
Pit bulls are also not friendly with other animals, especially smaller ones, and exhibit aggressive behavior thereof. Pit bulls should be prohibited from any multiple-dwelling apartment buildings for the safety of other pets, children, and other persons.
If you are a resident and a pit bull moves into your building, send a letter to the landlord, co-op board, and/or management company informing them that you will sue them for violating your proprietary lease if the pit bull resides on the premises.
Bye-bye bully breed.
