July 2012: Pit Bulls

  • Aired: 07/19/2012
  • 27:40
  • Rating: NR
Bad rap or bad breed? That’s a question in many minds when it comes to pit bulls. Some courts and media reports have called them aggressive and inherently dangerous. But animals activists and pit bull owners cry out against this “racial profiling” for dogs. We’ll meet a pit bull, talk about a Florida pit bull ban, look at the breed’s reputation and efforts to combat breed discrimination.
