Ban the Deed, NOT the Breed!!
About Breed Specific Legislation...
It is the responsibility of every dog owner to educate people about their chosen breed. In reviewing BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) laws there are many breeds affected and only more to come without proper education. Every 10 years or so there is a new "bad" breed. In the 70's it was the Doberman, in the 90's the Rottweiler, and now, the Pit Bull. Who will be next? It could be any powerful breed.
BSL is a quick reaction to an incident without education or knowledge. People often overreact to reports of dog attacks without knowing all of the details surrounding the incident. There is always a reason for the attack. Often, it's a result of a child being left unsupervised with a dog. Children and dogs should always be supervised, no matter what breed of dog! Although many attacks are said to be done by "Pit Bulls", few people can accurately identify a Pit Bull 100%. To start, "pit bull" isn't a breed, it's a term used to categorize 3 breeds of dog, the American Staffordshire Terrier, the Staffordshire Terrier and the American Pit Bull Terrier. There are at least other 11 breeds that have the looks of a "pit bull" and that's not including the many different mixes of these breeds.
Education is critical, and before passing local ordinances and state laws, our city and state officials have a responsibility to become educated on the subject matter and seek out responsible opinions from experts.
