If you spend any time in Hawaii away from the usual touristy places and talk to the locals about what they like to do, one thing you might hear is how often they love hunting feral pigs.
Feral pigs are the big game species on most Hawaiian islands, and because they are considered both an invasive species and favorite game species, lots of people keep dogs for hunting pigs.
Hawaii's favorite sports
Pit bulls are among the most common breeds bred to catch dogs in hog hunting. In hog hunting with dogs, two types of dogs are used: the bay dog and the catch dog. The bay dogs track down the hogs and then chase them until they stand and fight. The bay dogs run around the hog and bark at it (“baying” it). It is at this time that the human hunters show up with the catch dogs that come in and held by the ears so that humans can easily kill the hog or tie up and carry it home for fattening or sale.
Pitbulls- designed to kill
Pitbull, a dog breed made to be naturally aggressive towards other dogs and humans, and they have a tendency to be violent. This tendency translates into statistics that give faith of a work well done by the breeders that created them: Pit bulls make up only 6% of the dog population, but they’re responsible for 68% of dog attacks and 52% of dog-related deaths.
In states where hunting hogs with dogs is a common activity, Pitbulls and American Bulldogs are going to be common breeds that people will have as pets. Not every hog hunter will keep every puppy that is produced, and they sell them as pets.
Pitbulls- easy to train
Pitbulls are easy to be trained. Any dog can be trained to be violent and aggressive, but Pitbulls need to be trained to not be so.
There are many Pitbull owners who spend the effort and time to make Pitbulls docile.
