“The defense by pit bull lovers that it is how you raise the dog does not hold water,” said Sizwe Kupelo, founder of an organisation dedicated to preventing attacks by the dogs. “So many people, including joggers, have been attacked and killed by pit bulls.

It is time that the South African government takes decisive steps and imposes a complete ban on the ownership of pit bulls as domestic animals. Such a move would prevent further attacks and unnecessary deaths.”
