I just want to make one thing clear. The problem with animal control in Union County comes from people, not pets. Everyone is running around claiming we should make pit bulls illegal. Really? Why do we need to remove a breed of dog when its the owner that’s the problem, every single time? If the two pit bulls in Waxhaw had been on a leash, they wouldn’t have attacked that poor five year old girl. Again, their owner’s fault. If they hadn’t been beaten, starved and abused (as described in the UCW stories and on tv), they wouldn’t have been in a mindset where attacking little Makayla was an option. Don’t blame the dog, blame the owner.
