At the end of the day, its down to a lack of education, not only for the restricted breed, but for any breed. Some of us on this forum have have dogs a fair few years. I have had dogs all my life, not only bull breeds but other dogs too. There was never an attack or bite in our house. Well thats a lie, apart from a little Yorkie we had, when i wa a kid, i used to torment him and he'd snap at me. These attacks dont just happen for no reason, theres a reason behind every animal attack. I hope in people in the future will be more educated and some common sense in owning a dog. I seen some very good comments in this thread.

I voted no , but obviously in my opinion that depends on the individual in question & set circumstances.
I believe that if someone can prove they have put in the homework & have reached a reasonable level of knowledge on the breed & thier traits ,
then with the correct guidance & work there really should not be a problem.

So called accidents are more often than not highly avoidable ,
there are normally underlying stat's , genarally human generated !

Cheer's , Terry.
