Why do Pit Bulls have a bad reputation

Report as

Because of attacks which were highly publicized. Also, their owners never seem to understand the concept of personal space and keeping their animals under control.

Because the breed was originally used for baiting/killing bulls in large pits for "sport" long ago. They have a bad reputation as a result.

Personally, I have had the bad luck to have met mostly bad ones.

But remember that not all of them are bad. They are sort of like humans. Are all humans bad? No. It depends on their life and their past and how they were raised, for both pit bulls and humans.

I work in an ER and most dog attacks are by pit bulls. It's in their nature. Of course there are a lot of counter examples out there based on how they are raised.

Because when they attack they don't let go unless you kill them

Because it is very muscular and it was bred to be a fighting dog because of abusive owners. But truthfully they are the sweetest dogs ever
