1) Do you mean the American pit bull terrier or do you mean the common usage of 'pit bull' that covers various breeds as well as deliberate cross and mutts? If the latter, it's understandable that is likely to cover a fairly large number of dogs compared to a specific breed term. I think some people are also bad at identifying dogs and the negative stigma can be added in when a dog report is reported.(I knew you, specifically, were going to say that! About pits and about your dog! 6th sense. )Then why do we more often hear of a dog who attacked and harmed someone, getting put down - and it's a pit bull? I don't think it's an irrational fear. They shouldn't be city/ neighbourhood pets. They belong in rural areas.
I hope you keep Lucy on a leash (and a muzzle) around people if she's that dangerous!
2) Little dogs often get a pass even when they do harm due to the limited amount of damage.
3) Who owns the dog, some people want the 'pit bull' type due to the image and they also encourage the aggressive behaviour.
I'm happy with the bylaws here, it's about the dog and not the breed.
