I have no doubt. Most people can't identify an American Staff from a lineup, and unfortunately, many breeds of their own become labeled as a pit bull.
It's to the point that whenever a news story comes up, it's almost assumed that the attack came from a pit bull. Then you find out it was another breed of dog.
There was a husky that killed an infant here a few years ago, it was tragic. But we never seen the stink in the news over the dog. If it had been a pitbull, people would be pulling out the torch and pitchforks.
