This is ridiculous. Any law that is breed or worse (type) specific is unfair. Each dog and his owner should be held accountable.Unfortunately often this means a dog will pay with his life for the owners offense but at least there was an actual act of aggression in these cases. These laws are like gun laws they only punish the law abiding person usually... I cant imaging someone telling me I would have to surrenf=der my beloved pet regarless of breed because of unfair laws... Punish the offender more severely to make a point not the loving dog owner.

This is ridiculous!!! Why don't we ban men while we're at it. After all, who starts the wars, does the most rapes, commits the most homicides, deals the most dope, is involved most often with terroristic plots, and is most often violent and abusive? It's the same thing. Forget all the men not involved and focus on the ones with a problem. Only it's never a dog's fault. There is always a human behind every incident concerning a dog. It is completely stupid to blame them and hurt them for what others caused!

I don't really understand why people think they have a right to ban this beautiful and kind breed of canine. They are a powerful breed but they are also kind, loyal, and caring canines. The people that should be punished are not the responsible owners but the people that are a disgrace to mankind and decide to benefit on a animals demise. The people that support this bill are no better than the people that give the dog a bad name.

Pit bulls are friendly dogs. i have 5 of them, its just like raiseing a kid, if u raise it right then they will be a good pet but if u raise them wrong they will be like a kid going to prison. So whats the driffrence. i call my pits my sons and dauthters, cause they are like kids to me. they are loveing and playful. i have been attacked by rottweiler but who cares, people are only soloing out pit bulls with is god damm bull shit. Even at the dog pound the people say that chihuahua, poodle, alone with other dogs are more vicious then pits so why the hell is everyone soloing out a breed. That is not fair to the breed, AND HOW THE CAN THE GOVERNMENT TELL US WHAT KIND OF PET WE CAN AND CANNOT HAVE...... free country my ass.... It is the owners who make all dogs mean, the owner should be punished and not the breed.

Why is only pit bulls being singled out?

German Shepherds are known to attack viciously, beagles, poodles, Dobermans, chows, shar pei, along with so many other breeds. For Jesus Christ the police freaking train German shepherd to attack crooks, what if one day it attacked an innocent person? Would it get on the news? NO! Because it's not a pit
bull.

I agree with what these comments have said. It’s the owner not the dog! It’s the owners responsibility to raise the dog and they are responsible for their actions. I suggest owners wanting to own a pit or even just anyone research the breed. American Staffordshire Pit Bull Terriers are born loving but need to be pushed in the right direction as they reach adult hood. Many Staffordshire terrier owners don't know how to raise the breed properly thus resulting in a vicious dog. I'm not saying all owners are horrible, I'm just saying the owner needs to understand how the breed should be raised. You can’t just go day by day calling your dog your little sweetheart thinking it would never be bad; that’s not the case. With a pit bull it needs to run, needs exercise, or else it can be destructive to a house hold; just like many other breeds, i.e. Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Don't beat your dog if it did something wrong just be firm with the dog. Any form of beating a pit bull can and will result in the terrier to get vicious even with its own master. A Staffordshire Pit Bull terrier needs an owner who will be firm to correct it, not beat it. I will agree that Pit Bulls are not good with children, but so are other breeds.


Also the pit bull is very protective of its family. So if you are a stranger coming for the first time to a house with a pit bull terrier don’t expect it to love up on you. There are breeds out there meant and bred to protect and defend its family. If a robber is breaking into your home and your pit bull attacks him, isn’t that a good thing?


I don’t agree with this bill at all, what kind of would want to take your family pet, your family friend, your family protector from your home and kill it?! That’s inhumane to me right there. What if you bill passers have say a cocker spaniel and it attacks someone and then a bill wants to be passed to remove all cockers from the state and kill them? Inhumane right? Really and truly people just need to study the breed, why do you think rescues are so hard on adoptions? Because they want the proper care for the animal, they want the people applying for the animal to know the breed so they know how to raise it. Its not the dog, IT’S THE OWNERS!

I was viciously attacked by a shepard, and now own a pit bull. Why are certain breeds being punished for crappy owners, shouldn't they be the ones punished. Why not require obedience school, create neighborhood dog parks, registering dogs, and even making sure that the people who have pit bulls or other aggressive dogs can give them the exercise and training they require.

All dogs are born the same, harmless, for only we can make a bad dog, they can't train themselves on how to act, they must be guided. There are thousands of nice pits, the breed can't change itself by not being influenced on how to do it, whether it is being nice, and happy, or being trained to be mean, and trained to love the taste of blood. Don't band the breed, band the people who do this.

Any persons introducing this kind of legislation should be put in prison for belonging to the comunist party. You dont attack the animal because your scared to handel the owner.

You realize respnsible owners will eiter leave the state or turn over their dogs an offender will just get another dog or keep theirs and to think I was going to move back home. I am from reading ohio and there I would only be required to have insurance and get them microchipped. and get a pen.

the article is dumb the dog only does what it is trained to do . also why would a gov rep try to inact a bill that would cost the public thousands of dollars when the state is going broke. this is a way to drive away people that want to live there and support the state.

Okay so I read this article and I understand. There are some PEOPLE who raise the dogs to be this way or train them. But instead of taking all the pit bulls or dogs like pit bulls or relatives, pretty much instead of taking someones family member.. How about you take the dogs that are ACTUALLY hurting people or other animals and such. I think this idea is stupid and idiotic. I mean what about German Shepards? What about Rockweilers? Excuse me if my spelling is incorrect, but you can't just start seizing peoples dogs like you're seizing drugs or something. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. The government and all of everything going on is a lot anyways. I myself am going to receive a pit bull for Christmas, and I know people with pit bulls that are as sweet as they can be so it's not all the dogs and maybe you need to check your reports and see what neighborhood has the bad dogs and so on before you do something stupid.. To some people they are family members, and how would you fell if a bill was passed and said okay there are a lot of blonde headed people who are dangerous to the children, so if you have any family members with blonde hair you need to give them up!? I mean come on this is STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why doesn't Yates just pass a law that once dog fighters are convicted that they be euthanized? Dog fighting doesn't just involve innocent Pit Bulls that are trained to be killers, but bait animals, drugs, and homocides. Children are allowed to attend these senseless and barbaric dog fights. What kind of sick people would condone any of this, and what kind of example is this to set for children? These are all good enough reasons to just put the dog fighters to sleep! If these fools knew they would pay w/ their own lives I can almost guarantee dog fighting would stop!
