bad news for good dogs

Ontario's highest court has upheld the province's unreasonable ban on any breeds classified as pit bulls. Irresponsible owners of dogs of other breeds can do what they please, yet any dog that anyone thinks is a pit bull can be confiscated and killed.

If it weren't for some kind Mississauga Animal Services worker, our Buster might have met that fate on our third day in Canada. The dog whose life we worked so hard to save, the dog of my heart, could have been taken from us and killed - because a nosy neighbour saw him react to another dog, while on a leash.

Breed-specific legislation is bigotry. "Punish the deed, not the breed." For facts on "bully boys," see Bad Rap.
