Most of the time if you can find the stats on other child injury deaths in your area, this is a powerful argument against knee jerk BSL in response to dog bite injury deaths.

You are more likely, statistically, to die in your bathtub than you are to die from a dog bite injury.

MANY more children die from parental abuse every year than EVER do from dog bite injury.

I urge you to join the Pet Law list immediately, they can advise you on what to do and how to carry out a proactive campaign in your area against BSL.

There's a very good possibility at that length they will chop up your letter. On another site, when bsl was coming into place in Ontario, many people wrote letters. London Ont was classic for the pitty hating attitude of the press.

They chopped up a few people's letters so badly that they went from anti bsl to pro bsl... Not by changing their words but by removing sentences.

You may want to see what the accepted word count is and try really hard to stay within that. You don't want to give an excuse to have them change what you mean.

99.9% of us that are utterly innocent, responsible dog owners
I wish that were true... .. But there are in fact more irrisponsable/ignorant dog/pet owners out there then people that are knowlegable..

I really liked your letter to the editor... I think it'll make them second guess their reasons to ban rotties, shepherds, pitties etc...
How about they ban somthing that kills more people everyday then murder, like cigarettes..

Thanks everyone.

RedyreRottweilers: I will try and find some good statistics. Thanks for suggestion.

MafiaPrincess: I am going to be checking with the paper on Monday to see how long it can be. I'm pretty sure it will be just fine considering we live in a small community and there is really never much for them to write about lol.

Im wondering where I could find accurate statistics. I googled it and didn't really have any luck. Remember I'm Canadian.
