Positives of Bsl / Positives of breed specific laws – Arguments for breed specific laws BSL

Breed-specific legislation is a law passed by a legislative body pertaining to a specific breed or breeds of domesticated animals. In practice, it generally refers to laws pertaining to a specific dog breed or breeds.

Some jurisdictions have enacted breed-specific legislation in response to a number of well-publicized incidents involving pit bull-type dogs or other dog breeds commonly used in dog fighting, and some government organizations such as the United States Army and Marine Corps have taken administrative action as well. This legislation ranges from outright bans on the possession of these dogs, to restrictions and conditions on ownership, and often establishes a legal presumption that these dogs are prima facie legally “dangerous” or “vicious.” In response, some state-level governments in the United States have prohibited or restricted the ability of municipal governments within those states to enact breed-specific legislation.

Certain dog breeds including pit bulls are a public safety issue that merits actions such as banning ownership, mandatory spay/neuter for all dogs of these breeds, mandatory microchip implants and liability insurance, or prohibiting people convicted of a felony from owning them.

There is a large group that says, “ban pit bulls and their closely related breeds.” This group of advocates is diverse and respected, and it even includes Ingrid Newkirk, the president of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). They see the pit bull as overly dangerous and overly abused by mankind. The danger of pit bulls and Rottweilers is well established, in that they account for 75% of all reported canine-inflicted human deaths in the past two decades. It is undisputed that pit bulls in particular are the most abused dog in the USA; created for the specific purpose of violence, the dogs are treated cruelly to make them as dangerous as possible, and are routinely abandoned when they are not vicious enough for their evil masters.

There are two articles that present very well the argument in support of breed bans. The first is by an attorney who won the famous Denver breed ban case. The City of Denver passed a breed ban against pit bulls which the State of Colorado attempted to overturn. The State lost in court because the City produced the evidence that pit bulls are more dangerous than other dogs. The story of that case, and a review of that evidence, is contained in Nelson K. One City’s Experience – Why Pit Bulls Are More Dangerous and Breed-Specific Legislation is Justified. Muni Lawyer, July/August 2005, Vol. 46, No. 4.

The second is an article that considered the problem from a humane standpoint. The following rationale for banning pit bulls appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle on June 8, 2005. It was written by Ingrid Newkirk, the president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the author of “Making Kind Choices” (St. Martin’s Griffin, 2005).
Controlling an animal as deadly as a weapon
— Ingrid Newkirk
Most people have no idea that at many animal shelters across the country, any pit bull that comes through the front door doesn’t go out the back door alive. From California to New York, many shelters have enacted policies requiring the automatic destruction of the huge and ever-growing number of “pits” they encounter. This news shocks and outrages the compassionate dog-lover.
Here’s another shocker: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the very organization that is trying to get you to denounce the killing of chickens for the table, foxes for fur or frogs for dissection, supports the shelters’ pit-bull policy, albeit with reluctance. We further encourage a ban on breeding pit bulls.
The pit bull’s ancestor, the Staffordshire terrier, is a human concoction, bred in my native England, I’m ashamed to say, as a weapon. These dogs were designed specifically to fight other animals and kill them, for sport. Hence the barrel chest, the thick hammer-like head, the strong jaws, the perseverance and the stamina. Pits can take down a bull weighing in at over a thousand pounds, so a human being a tenth of that weight can easily be seriously hurt or killed.
Pit bulls are perhaps the most abused dogs on the planet. These days, they are kept for protection by almost every drug dealer and pimp in every major city and beyond. You can drive into any depressed area and see them being used as cheap burglar alarms, wearing heavy logging chains around their necks (they easily break regular collars and harnesses), attached to a stake or metal drum or rundown doghouse without a floor and with holes in the roof. Bored juveniles sic them on cats, neighbors’ small dogs and even children.
In the PETA office, we have a file drawer chock-full of accounts of attacks in which these ill-treated dogs with names like “Murder” and “Homicide” have torn the faces and fingers off infants and even police officers trying to serve warrants. Before I co-founded PETA, I served as the chief of animal-disease control and director of the animal shelter in the District of Columbia for many years. Over and over again, I waded into ugly situations and pulled pit bulls from people who beat and starved them, or chained them to metal drums as “guard” dogs, or trained them to attack people and other animals. It is this abuse, and the tragedy that comes from it, that motivates me.
Those who argue against a breeding ban and the shelter euthanasia policy for pit bulls are naive, as shown by the horrifying death of Nicholas Faibish, the San Francisco 12-year-old who was mauled by his family’s pit bulls.
Tales like this abound. I have scars on my leg and arm from my own encounter with a pit. Many are loving and will kiss on sight, but many are unpredictable. An unpredictable Chihuahua is one thing, an unpredictable pit another.
People who genuinely care about dogs won’t be affected by a ban on pit- bull breeding. They can go to the shelter and save one of the countless other breeds and lovable mutts sitting on death row. We can only stop killing pits if we stop creating new ones. Legislators, please take note.

REASONS WHY BSL IS Positive and EFFECTIVE IN PROTECTING THE PUBLIC
– Dog control problems are people problems, and are not limited to a breed or mix. However some breeds are more prone to do certain things – pit bulls are more prone to attack and not let go while hunting dogs are more prone to hunt.

– Banning a breed or declaring it inherently vicious punishes those responsible dog owners but also stops a violent animal being in a public place example alligators cannot be kept as pets in many areas – to protect the public .

– Breeds and mixes are easy to identify with simple dna testing .

– The “pit bull” is a TYPE of dog bred for fighting

– Laws on “types” of dogs will cause owners of those “types” to move away or respect bsl laws – meaning they will have to muzzle their dog in public – giving the public greater safety and stops kids getting mauled

Anti Pit bull task force will reconvene, lawmaker says

A task force that studied possible solutions to a liability problem created by a Maryland high court ruling that called pit bulls “inherently dangerous” will be reconvened, a state lawmaker said.

Del. Michael D. Smigiel Sr., R-Upper Shore, said Thursday the task force that met several times over the summer will start meeting again after the General Assembly could not reconcile differences between Senate and House of Delegates versions of the legislation passed during the gambling-focused August special session.

“The pit bull task force will be called back in for some further review,” Smigiel said. “They’re looking at doing something that’s more in line with what [Sen. Brian E.] Frosh wanted.”

The bill passed in the Senate and championed by Frosh made all dog owners strictly liable if their dog bit someone, with some exceptions. But the House version drastically narrowed Frosh’s legislation, making owners liable only if a dog was running “at large.”

The House adjourned after passing the amended bill and legislation that could expand casino gambling in Maryland, giving the Senate two take-it-or-leave-it options. Frosh chose to leave the pit bull bill.

Since then, a lawsuit has been filed calling the Court of Appeals’ April ruling unconstitutional.

BSL ON THE RISE – Pit Bull Kills Nellie Davis after Heart Transplant, OK Legislator Wants Tough Laws

Nellie Davis, 60, had moved into her granddaughter’s apartment to continue her recovery from a heart transplant, only to be mauled to death by one of the granddaughter’s Pit Bulls on Wednesday, September 25, reports wtvr.com

The attack took place at an apartment complex near N.W. 122nd St. and Penn. Ave. in Oklahoma City.

The victim’s granddaughter came home to find the Pit Bull had broken out of its kennel and brutally mauled Nellie Davis to death. “You have to understand, the scene was quite gruesome, Oklahoma City Police Captain Dexter Nelson told reporters. “The lady died a horrific death.”

Nellie’s husband, Cleveland Davis, said, “She had a long illness, from Mother’s Day until a month ago, and finally she had a chance to come home. “You know I have a heavy heart. She’s always been there for me.”

The granddaughter said that the Pit Bull had problems with thunderstorms, and the weather on Wednesday night may have caused it to turn vicious and kill her grandmother.

Police officers who responded to the grisly scene struggled with the out-of-control dog and were afraid they could not keep it within the apartment complex, reports the Daily Mail.

‘The dog had broken the door so they couldn’t contain him to the kennel. They tried to wedge things in the door to keep the dog in,” Captain Nelson told kfor.com.

Captain Nelson said the Pit Bull tried to attack medical responders and would not allow them to approach Ms. Davis’ body. Police officers were also fearful the dog would attack while they were trying to conduct an investigation of the scene, so they were forced to shoot and kill it.

STATE LEGISLATOR WANTS TOUGHER DOG-BITE LAW

On September 29, Oklahoma State Representative Paul Wesselhoft announced that he wants to see a law passed that imposes tougher punishments for pit bull owners, after this week’s deadly dog attack on Nellie Davis.. However, he fears it may take another death to get other lawmakers on board.
“It’s a flawed animal,” Wesselhoft told OKCFox, after being shown the story of Cecil Elliott, a pit bull attack victim who talked about the attack on him by a Pit Bull and the deadly mauling that killed Nellie Davis.

Cecil Elliott thinks there should be a law that would impose tougher punishments on pit bull owners if their dogs run loose. “I think that you have a right to own a pit bull dog, I’m not saying that you don’t, but the dog has a propensity to be more aggressive by nature,” said Elliott.

Representative Wesselhoft, who serves on the Conference Committee on Public Safety, said he is inspired to draft legislation within the next few months. He does not want to ban pit bulls. Instead, he’s looking into increasing penalties against dog owners if their pet bites someone.

“It’s pretty tragic that we have to wait until people are killed,” he told OKCFox. “Maybe it will take another couple of deaths. Maybe another child has to lose their life. It’s unfortunate but sometimes legislation is driven by tragedy,” he lamented.

Cecil Elliott described the on-going tragedy for survivors of Pit Bull attacks, “If you’ve ever been attacked by a pit bull, those memories are still there,” he said sadly.

STOCKBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say they have killed a pit bull that attacked a 6-year-old boy who was bitten while riding a bike in Stockbridge Township.

Ingham County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Weiss says officials were called to a Lansing-area home about 9:30 a.m. Sunday after the boy was bitten in the leg. The boy was treated for a puncture wound and cut on his lower leg.

Weiss and a deputy went to the home and attempted to make contact with the homeowner, but no one was home. He tells the Lansing State Journal (http://on.lsj.com/Pnb5Dl ) the dog was running freely in the yard and acting aggressively.

He says authorities fatally shot the dog because it “was a danger to the public.”

Weiss says deputies left a note for the homeowner, who has not called.
