Montgomery Advertiser Uses Pit Bull Photo for Husky Problem

Prattville residents want tougher dog laws. The media covering this story choose to use the picture to the left to depict "dangerous dogs". This is like the go-to picture when anything about "dangerous dogs" comes up. Usually, it's a diatribe on the evils of Pit Bulls because clearly a Staffordshire Bull Terrier straining at a leash and barking is a threat to all life on earth (no other dog on earth has been known to bark and have poor leash manners).

The reason for the tougher dog law suggestion?

A husky who has killed one dog and chased both people and other dogs.

And people claim there isn't a media bias?
