I'm thankful for google, vintage and all of my secret squirrels

''A few years ago, we weren't focusing on pit bulls. A few years from now, we won't be focusing on pit bulls.'' RANDALL LOCKWOOD, 1987

a few years?

We've been focusing on the pit bulldog problem for the past 200 years and if Ledy Vankavage succeeds, we will be focusing on pit bulldogs for the next 200 years. The popularity of dog breeds will always wax and wane but the pit bulldog will remain a constant threat.

Orlando Sentinel, November 15, 1987

HSUS began focusing on bulldogs in 1976. HSUS is still focusing on bulldogs and I see no change forthcoming.

oh yes, 1976. that year was the game changer. the Supreme Court passed the Animal Welfare Act of 1976. This groundbreaking act made dogfighting officially illegal in all 50 states, as well as set strict penalties for anyone found caught fighting dogs. LOL

Dr Lockwood was working for the HSUS when this broken promise was made and the indoctrination of Animal Control Officers began. Nearly 270 Americans have been killed by pit bulls in the years since.

Class action...
