Have pit bulls gotten a bad rap? That's the premise behind Beyond the Myth, Libby Sherrill's documentary on the misconceptions about the animals that screened last night at the Mayan, in the heart of a city that bans the breed.
And despite all the information that Sherrill lays out in her movie, some people aren't persuaded.
I don't believe that you can reliably trust a 'pit bull type' of dog.... they have a genetic switch that can not be predicted by any sort of test. They have proven that time and time and time again.
Did you see Beyond the Myth? What do you think about pit bulls?
