Why does Colleen Lynn of Dogsbite keep getting quoted as some kind of expert?

She has zero qualifications. She is not a canine behaviorist. She is one person with a visceral hatred of all stocky dogs.

She has a computer and access to Google, where she sits on her butt and types in words that will pull up negative stories about "pit bulls" which papers are all too happy to publish in order to draw traffic.

Colleen does not vet any of the links she publishes. She has "statistics" on her site such as "100% of pit bull owners are criminals" which is ludicrous. Oh, she includes traffic tickets to get to the 100%, which by her logic means 100% of any group of people you can think of are criminals. Except that traffic tickets are civil, not criminal, offenses.

Anyone who disagrees with Colleen is labeled a "pit nutter" and odds are she will make your email public so that her minions can flame you with hate emails.

There isn't a single respected/reputable canine behaviorist or organization who would agree with Colleen Lynn and she does not deserve to be quoted for any reason whatsoever.

It's funny how Colleen Lynn of Dogsbite manages to be quoted for "articles" like these.

Being a victim of a dog bite does not render one a dog bite expert. Nor is she an expert even in the remotest sense of the word when it comes to canine behavior. All she is is a person with a visceral hatred of all stocky canines, a computer, and access to internet search engines. She does not vet any of her links, she simply links to anything negative and ignores bites by other types of dogs. If you disagree with her, you are a "pit nutter" and there's a good chance she'll make your email public so that her minions can flame you with hate emails.

There isn't a single respected canine behaviorist or organization who would agree with any of the fear and misinformation she puts out as fact.
