From the Huffington Post:

Truck driver Chis Price was worried about more than just his health when he collapsed in Kansas City, Missouri, while out on a haul last month. 

Price, whose home is in Tennessee, was even more concerned about his driving buddy: a sweet white pit bull named Coco -- who'd been with him all over, nonstop, for seven years, and who was taken away by animal control as Price himself was carted off in an ambulance.

There was good reason to be nervous. An estimated 3,000 pit bulls are killed in animal shelters across the country each day.

Coco and Chris' story is a good example of why we need to end breed specific legislation. It does more harm than good.
