Catholic Houma Nation

Pit Bull

This boy loves his dog in spite of the fact that she is a pit bull.  The dog seems to love him too.  A debate is ongoing in south Louisiana about the nature of these beasts...are they bred to be mean or are they brought up that way?  Nature versus nurture.  Having survived a pit attack, I am cautious.  Having met this pit bull, I am optimistic that I can overcome my fear of them.

Beautiful, beautiful Zion
