Driver Of Cable Car Starts Altercation Because It Was A Pit Bull
A man and his service dog (a pit bull) boarded a San Francisco cable car only to be asked to deboard or move to another seat by the driver of the cable car.
The pit bull owner refused, stating he had a right to be on the car with his service dog.
The cable car driver stated that he was uncomfortable having a pit bull near him because he was afraid.
Oddly enough, the pit bull was docile and was not aggressive in any way towards that passenger.
A woman walking along the sidewalk happened to witness the incident. Ironically, she is an owner and advocate of pit bulls.
She recorded the incident and posted the video online where it has received over 700,000 hits.
The service dog’s owner filed a complaint with the mayor’s office. The driver of the cable car was not found guilt of any wrong doing.
The stereotype that is slapped onto the pit bull breed has caused the general public to fear these dogs.
It’s unfortunate that the breed is so misunderstood and berated.
What one fails to realize is if you see a pit bull that is a service dog, you can bet your bottom dollar that dog has undergone some serious training and socialization.
