There once lived a family down the street from us a few years ago that had two pit bulls and they did the worst thing I've ever seen with my own eyes. While some people defend the breed, they often attract more bad owners than good owners. This family were not great members of society, and their dogs weren't fed well at all. They had a rather half-broken gate, so the dogs could get out if they wanted to. One day we saw both of them get out and they had cornered a cat. The cat did not evade the dogs and both dogs got the cat and started pulling from two directions. After I heard the cat scream about five seconds later, the dogs had torn it into two halves.
