It's no secret that pit bulls get a bad rap. Myths that the dogs have "locking jaws" and always fight to the death are widespread, and studies have shown that the media sensationalize pit bull attacks.
That's probably among the reasons this picture, entitled "Your typical violent and aggressive pit bull," went viral on Reddit over the weekend, garnering nearly 1,500 comments and nearly one million views.
If you're interested in learning more about pit bulls, visit the ASCPA or Bay Area Doglovers Responsible About Pit Bulls. And yes, the acronym for the latter organization is BADRAP.
UPDATE 3/26: Carla, who runs Working Terriers, reached out to us and let us know that she took the photo. Readers can see more of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, named Boom, on his Facebook page.
