I have 2 Pitbulls, one male and one female. My female is animal aggressive. If she got out she would not focus on eating and attacking anybody, she would first find a cat or dog to start with. WHY? Because I am NOT raising my dogs with any aggression what-so-ever. I truly believe the reason these Pits attacked these people is because they were training them for fighting...PERIOD!!!
