Dont' be afraid to educate or speak your peace to the news reporters!
One great thing I learned from a Bully blog was how to write an educational, yet very effective letter to an organization that may have played with the pit bull 'hype.'
By simply writing something like, the real statistics, (citations here) show they are actually not the top biting breed, etc etc and if you are going to report this dog bite, be accurate and report all dog bites. Anything else at all is unfair and biased.
For example, I work with several ACOs. The number of dog bites in relation to the number of them being reported is so ghastly big its ridiculous. There's no notary of every bite, and it's not required unless police are involved in my area.
So when the neighbor's golden mauls the other neighbor's setter, and end up in the emergency room for 1000s of dollars in law suit, never is in the paper. The second a dog that looks like a bully makes a funny look, its in the paper.
If we all made a point to write letters or contact organizations like this then we've done something, and maybe this small part can actually help some day!
