      How about…"NOOOOOOO!!!!!!! NOT AGAIN!??!?!?!" San Diego seems to be a hot bed of PB attacks but then they adopt them out of the shelter for free… what would you expect?

    So other than this being a useless article with no information how the heck do we know it was a pit bull? The first thing the article says is "…Officials were searching for a dog that attacked a person in Bay Park…" A DOG….and then all the sudden it identifies the dog as a pit bull…were there witnesses…is the victim not so seriously hurt he was able to identify the dog….why would this article be published with so little information except to demonize pit bulls again? I want more info!!!!

    Alienate a breed to capture more viewers, classy fox 5. If it was a golden retriever, the lady had it coming right. Disgusting, you lost a viewer today.

    imagine the uproar from pit owners if moving forward only the word "dog" could be used in reporting! Sure, that's how they want it when the story is bad, like this one, but wowza, if it was a good news story and the reporting was simply "dog helps owner" pit owners would scream that it should be a reported as a pit because pits are so wonderful, and that the media is trying to hide the good things pits do. Sorry pit owners, media report it's a pit attack because it's a pit attack. There is no media conspiracy, and yes, the majority of folks can look at a dog and know it's a pit. Why those points seem easier to believe than believing that this type of dog, like all others, simply does what it's genetics tell it to you is mind boggling.

    This article was likely intended to warn people there was yet again a pit bull roaming and attacking people. I hope in the meantime someone has shot the pit bull.
