What does this mean to pit bull owners
there? No more puppies, and no more imports. It's a
"humane" way to eliminate yet another species.
What does this mean in the big picture of things? For
starters, one might wonder which breed will be next?
Maybe German Shepherds will receive a bad reputation,
or possibly Rottweilers. This just doesn't seem to be
the way to go about this. A pit bull is not a gun, and
even though humans customized them for fighting, they
still deserve to exist.
Try to think of it this way. When governments
were inundated with dog crap all over their streets,
sidewalks, and parks, they didn't ban all dogs that
poop. They went after the dog owners, as it should be.
In nature, none of this would ever be an issue. You
humans are the ones that are forcing animals to live
under your rules, so you should be taking your frustrations
out on yourselves, not us.
I truly feel sorry for anyone attacked by
a vicious dog, but the fact still remains, that you
don't exterminate all animals, because someone gets
hurt by one. Targeting the owners with fines, and possible
jail time, is the only proper deterrent. Banning certain
breeds of dogs may be a quick fix, but dealing with
the owners will be a permanent solution.
Imagine this as a news headline. Punk rockers
banned from major cities. Due to a recent spur of punk
rocker related violence, all of them will be banned
from city areas. Sounds pretty silly doesn't it? Believe
it or not, it's been tried. Now they're trying it with
Pit bulls. The unfortunate conclusion is however, that
it's very difficult to police a breed of dog.
So lets stop this now, before it gathers
world wide appeal. It just may travel further than we're
willing to go. Consider dog owners that use their pets
as weapons, no better than someone that commits deadly
assault. Treat them no better than puppy mill operators.
String'em up by their red rubber balls. Just don't extinct
our brothers in paws just to make yourselves feel better.
Don't jump on the villagers bandwagon and hunt down
Frankenstein's monster. Make the irresponsible ones
