There are many people who are afraid of pit bulls. The dogs have a reputation for biting, and biting hard, sometimes fatally. So it comes as no surprise that a bystander who saw three pit bulls run up to a jogger in Tampa, Florida recently felt the need to protect the runner. The animals were not attacking or biting, just investigating. It will now be up to the county prosecutor there to decide if shooting two of those dogs, one fatally, was the right response or an over-reaction.
