Skokie Patch Poll Creates Pit Bull Love

After running a poll asking if pit bulls should be banned, readers voiced their thoughts and even took action. See what one local group did.

A story that recently appeared on Skokie Patch asked if pit bulls should be banned in Illinois. The question  Almost 100 people commented and about 700 shared the story on Facebook. 

Overall, it seems the community feels that banning any breed isn't the solution to preventing dog attacks. Of 755 votes, only 56 felt the breed should be banned while another 698, or 92 percent, felt otherwise. 

Now, a Skokie couple has created a Facebook page in response to the article titled, "Pit Bulls Are Great Dogs Skokie." Because the page just launched, they only have a few 'likes.'

To help them out with their cause, check out their Facebook page, here.

Thank u much for recognizing my page for the breed!! They are great dogs!! Any dog can be a great dog and any dog can be nasty it's all how you raise them! I socialized my dog from a very younge age (6 weeks old) and he is now 2 years old!! Most loving dog ever at times he even thinks he is a lap dog!! I'm hoping to change people's outlook on this breed, some people it takes time some it's easy but even if I change a few that's a few that didn't like them now do! now maybe those people can educate others!
