I know this is going to cause a heated debate but.....
This story was in my local news and I cannot believe some of the comments I saw. How can you say a whole breed of dog is bad and should be exterminated? That is horrid. There are good dogs and bad dogs, just like people. A pit bull killed my mothers cat, but I don't blame the breed. I have known lots of very sweet dogs from "dangerous breeds". How can you assume the dog was attacking this child? Did anyone consider it was dragging her away from something or maybe it may have been playing rough but its a dog. If that dog was attacking her she would have had bites wounds. I am more concerned that the babysitter just left the child alone in the yard.

A toddler from Norco was attacked by the family pit bull Monday, May 28, but avoided major bite wounds, Cal Fire officials say.
A babysitter opened a sliding glass door to air out the house in the 600 block of 6th Street when the 19-month-old girl wandered outside with the dog, Riverside County sheriff's officials said.
The babysitter looked outside and saw the dog was dragging the toddler through the backyard. The girl was taken to a hospital with what was described by the Riverside County Fire Department as moderate injuries. Sheriff's officials said she suffered no puncture wounds or major bites.
The dog was quarantined by animal control, which is standard procedure for any animal attacks.
