Doggone Crazy: The Media’s Influence on Breed Specific Legislature

Research Project One, Attempt 2

This paper was inspired by my dog, Zeus, who is the greatest dog or human ever to roam this earth, and who happens to be a Pit Bull. In this paper I examine how Pit Bulls are unfairly portrayed by the media as unstable and violent dogs, and I link this to our emerging breed specific legislature. I examine the sharp contrast between how the media portrays public opinion of Pits (everyone hates them) to the actual public opinion of Pits (less than half of people dislike them), and conclude with a warning about the possible path were headed down, as well as some encouragement to get involved in local politics.
