One of the “oldie but moldy” urban myths that continues to circulate is the story of a “hero pit bull” that saved it’s master from a deadly snake. Heart-warming though such tales may seem to pit bull fans, there is simply no evidence that it ever happened. There original event does contain some of the elements of the urban myth which has been propagated; there was a snake, there was a pit bull, but the circumstances were hardly evidence of alleged pit bull heroics.
It’s gratifying to see that not everyone drinks the kool-aid, but in all likelihood, the die hard pit bull fans will continue to believe what they want to believe, while promoting pit bulls and inflicting them upon unsuspecting neighborhoods.
