According to, “genocide” is a term used to describe the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group. The term has no application for canines. Pit bull advocates and other Maul Talkers, however, use the term “canine genocide” to elevate pit bulls to the status of human beings. The following snip of a blog post aptly describes this:

A blatantly illogical, emotional, vindictive unfair and unethical argument doesn’t gain legitimacy just because it is directed at animals rather than human beings. I wonder how long it will be before The Daily Beast figures that out, and stops giving Frankie’s loyal friend a platform to preach canine genocide. –
