MD Residents Rally To Overturn "Inherently Dangerous" Label For Pit Bulls

Assault pooches?


A controversial pit bull ruling could be overturned. The dogs were labeled inherently dangerous by the high court, and now lawmakers say that's not the way to go.

With signs in hand and others being made to show their support for House Bill 78, pit bull owners came together at Lawyer's Mall in Annapolis, hoping to persuade lawmakers to reverse a 2012 decision by the Maryland Appeals Court that labeled pit bulls "inherently dangerous."

"Every dog owner should be responsible for their dog no matter their age, breed whatever," said Mindy Fitzgerald, pit bull owner.
