    Dozens of animal activists and dog owners held a rally outside the Maryland statehouse in Annapolis Tuesday in support of pit bulls. 

    The demonstrators urged lawmakers to override a recent Maryland court ruling that says pit bulls are inherently dangerous.

    Protesters said a dog's behavior should dictate whether the animal is dangerous, not the breed. 

    The group wanted lawmakers to deal with the issue during today's special session but it was not added to the agenda.
