Been a little slack on the posting lately. Staying busy busting asses over the pit bull issue. I feel strongly that the pit bull issue will be the one to break the back of no kill. There is a situation in Indy right now that requires attention.
I can't say enough about www.DogsBite.org and the information that is gathered on that site. It is invaluable. Looking at the news feeds daily has shown me that 1. Pit bulls are dangerous and 2. they do need to be banned. DogsBite just released a report compiled from news stories showing that on average pits are killing people at the rate of one every 21 days. This is unacceptable.
Pits in the shelters have no history. The pit nutters lay blame on how these dogs have treated, abused, etc. as to the reasons why they attack. Even with that argument, doesn't not knowing these shelter pits histories make them too dangerous to adopt out?
With regulations or bans in place, where would "No Kill" be in regards to open door shelters? What about Loudoun, VA? They don't adopt pits from their shelter, it was challenged in court, and withstood. Fat chance of making Loudoun into a "No Kill" shelter. So to address the pit issue is addressing "No Kill", let's try to kill two birds with one stone.
