A “stunt pit” is a pit bull used for a variety of positive pit bull media operations (See: Pit bulls as service dogs?) A stunt pit may be a service/therapy dog designated by a pit bull advocacy organization or a dog that is “rehabilitated” after a highly publicized mauling. Stunt Pitting does not fix the non-existent pit bull breeding standards, grow back a scalp or resurrect the life of a child, it only increases attacks as unqualified owners are attracted to the breed.
