Now I’m not sure if Julie Wall is intentionally trying to get people hurt or maybe she’s trying to drum up more media from dog attacks because recommending people carry a “breakstick” is recklessly dangerous and not real good advice from a legal stand point either as if you’re found to be carrying one you’re likely to treated as a suspected dogfighter and if you try to use it there’s a very high probability you’ll be the one needing medical attention.
Julie Wall; “ Does this sound like a normal and safe dog breed to you? Pit-Bull Rescue Central, the leading authority of pit-bulls recommends all pit owners to have a “break-stick”,a wedge-shaped piece of wood used to pry open a pit bull’s jaw during an attack.”, “Since pit bulls have a strong fighting background, we recommend that owners also have a breaking stick as a precaution. Breaking sticks are not something to brag about and the general pubic might have the wrong impression if you walk around with a stick in your hand. Breaking sticks are not illegal, but they are considered dog fighting paraphernalia in certain states and/or with certain law enforcement agents.”http://www.pbrc.net/breaksticks.html

According to Pit Bull Rescue Central, “It is a FACT that our pit bulls, AmStaffs and pit mixes come with a built-in fighting heritage.It doesn’t matter where we get them from, whether it be the pound, a stray we pick up, or a puppy we buy from a breeder. The majority of pit bulls will, at some point in their lives, exhibit some degree of dog-on-dog aggression. Yet, chances are that a “normal” pit bull will not share his affection with other animals.We cannot predict when or where it will happen and we can’t love, train or socialize it out of the dog. Pit bulls may not start fights, but they will finish them.” http://www.pbrc.net/misc/PBRC_dogpark.pdf“
Julie Wall There are 300 dog breeds and most have never killed anyone. Breed choice does matter! From 2005-2015, 222 killed by pit bulls: http://www.dogsbite.org/dog-bite-statistics-fatalities.php
The above comment was in reply to the a request from a parent claiming their 16 year old needs info for a school essay?
“So proud of my 16 year old son. His English class is writing an essay for class. They got to choose a topic from the list given by the teacher. One of them was “should people be able to own pit bulls”. He choose it. One of his friends is going to debate him on it. I’m so proud of him! He’s catching a ton of grief already for it. And he’s fine with that. So help me out friends. Give me key points you think are most important to put into this essay. He has to have 5 paragraphs. And GO!”
I’m not sure if this is a good source to get information for a school essay the
The Pit Bull Propaganda Machine Revealed is unreliable at best.
Julies response is one of many most dangerously reckless in varying degrees mostly propaganda from dogsbut.org , Df’s and that nutter Merritless. To be honest I’m starting to think Julie owns shares in a “breakstick” factory.
The big issue with breaksticks is if you try to use one on a non APBT it will most probably deflect the second you get it off the other dog and attack you, they can only be safely used with 3 people when you do use them and there’s many other safety concerns but you’ll notice Julie conveniently leaves the risks out.
As I’ve said Julie’s promotion of breaksticks equates to reckless endangerment and if somewhere taking her advice gets hurt trying to use said stick she deserves to be sued for being so irresponsible.
