The dogfighting community uses the term “cull” when referring to the elimination of a pit bull (killing it) after the animal shows undesirable characteristics. A cur, for instance, would be culled. Pit bull advocates and pro-pit bull groups falsely claim that man biters were historically culled. Yet the only evidence that exists regarding this claim is that dogfighters historically did NOT cull man biters when they performed well in the fighting pit (the dog was too valuable to cull).

Who in their right mind would step into a pit as a referee or trainer with two wounded animals fighting for their lives if there was the danger of becoming the focus of their attacks?? That is why any man biters were culled immediately. Therefore, those genes have been bred out of them. And your supposed “attack by a pit bull nearly every day of the week” is total bs! – Pit nutter Bill
