Pit Bull Lovers Unite

Posted by wlpo on September 24, 2010

Positive and pit bulls are rarely used in the same sentence.  But there’s an event tomorrow in Marseilles called “Pit Bull Positive”.

Pit bull owners and others are invited to a cookout, auction and bags tournament at Illini State Park starting at noon.  Tickets are 10 dollars a person or 15 dollars per couple and proceeds will go to Dan Meagher of Ottawa.  Meagher adopts pit bulls from IVAR.  He currently has six of the dogs at his home.

Meagher says being covered in tattoos, he’s always related to pit bulls in that they’re judged by their appearance.  He is on the side of pit bull attacks being caused by a reckless owner, not because of the breed of dog.

Despite his opinion, organizers of tomorrow’s cookout aren’t allowing pit bulls on site.
