Default 'Pit Bull' breeds banned

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please crosspost widely. Remember - it takes no effort to add ANY breed once these laws are passed!!



** PLEASE CROSS POST FAR AND WIDE **



Ontario Canada's Attorney General Michael Bryant has introduced Bill 132 to ban all Pit Bulls and "pit bull type" dogs across the province. Although existing pit bulls with owners are grandfathered, all others (including cross breeds or even similar looking dogs) face certain death, or worse, a life and death of torture in a scientific facility. The entire text of Bill 132 can be found here:



http://www.ontla.on.ca/documents/Bi...ion1/b132_e.htm



Status of the Bill:



Bill 132 has passed second reading in the Legislative Assembly and has been referred to the Standing Committee On The Legislative Assembly. This committee held public hearings over a span of four days but judging from the Attorney General's recent comments (see link to newspaper article below) the committee hearings were just a formality. All veterinary associations, animal welfare organizations, animal experts etc. etc. are VEHEMENTLY OPPOSED to this bill but their presentations fell on deaf ears!



There is little time left before the Standing Committee makes recommendations to the entire Assembly. Time is short and we must act NOW!

(Globe and Mail article following hearings)



On behalf of Kerwood Wolf Education Centre and The Tiger Foundation I made the following presentation to the committee after having been invited to speak:

Kerwood Wolf Education Centre recently sent out the following press release, after the Attorney General made ridiclous public comments concerning evidence given at the committee hearings:

ACTIONS TO TAKE:



1. Email ALL members of Ontario's Legislative Assembly and let your feelings about this atrocious bill be known (list of MPPs at end of this email).



2. Email ALL major Ontario newspapers and let them know this bill is opposed not just by the majority of people in Ontario, but around the world as well (list of newspapers at end of this email).



3. Cross post this email widely. Get the message out however you can. The lives of thousands of pit bulls are at stake.



Thank you!

This may well effect Boxers. The bill includes a defintion of a "pit bull" as:



(e) a member of a class of dogs that have an appearance and physical characteristics that are substantially similar to dogs referred to in any of clauses (a) to (d); ("pit-bull")



I think we all know how often Boxers are mistaken for pit bulls!



An excellent presentation, though graphic in parts and quite depressing, is:

Sorry this had to be three posts! It was too long for one or even two. Got this from another site.

Ugh. Just because a dog looks like a Pittie, doesn't mean it is one. I bet if Rose was ever dumped into a shelter (which will NEVER happen) she'd probably be labled as a Pitte mix just because she is a brindle color. All of this BSL is about ready to drive me insane!!! I don't know how much more of this I can take........
