THS Study Finds Breed Specific Legislation Has Not Reduced Dog Bites

The Toronto Humane Society has completed the results of a statistical survey of municipalities across Ontario regarding the number of dog bites. This survey shows that the Pit Bull ban has not resulted in a reduction in the number of dog bites in Ontario. Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) was included in amendments made to the Dog Owners Liability Act making Pit Bull’s an illegal breed in Ontario. This act has seen countless Pit Bulls (and Staffordshire Terrier’s) euthanized simply because of their breed. When introduced former Attorney General Michael Bryant stated in the Legislature “It's time that we make amendments to the Dog Owners' Liability Act that make our streets safer.” BSL has failed to do so. A study of the total number of dog bites since the Act came into effect in 2005 shows that there has been no significant reduction in the total number of dog bites since that time.

The Toronto Humane Society has long been an opponent of Breed Specific Legislation as it targets the wrong source of the problem. Dogs are not born violent but are made that way by irresponsible owners who train them to be that way or neglect them and they develop behavioural problems. “If we want to reduce the number of dog bites we have to address the route cause of the problem, those irresponsible owners who do not appropriately care for their animals.” Said Ian McConachie, Senior Communicator at the Toronto Humane Society. “It is clear from these figures that the BSL aspects of the Dog Owners Liability Act has not worked to decrease the incidents of dog bites.” The Toronto Humane Society calls on the McGuinty government to address this issue with amendments to this Act and to stop the punishment of innocent animals.

yeah, same idiot. He's a real f-ing piece of work.

The ban may not be working, but it is ensnaring people and dogs who are innocent! Recently, two Amer. Bulldog X Boxer siblings were persecuted. Initially, AC stopped to ask one owner to move a dog house away from the fence so the dog could not escape, took a look at the dog, and confiscated it(owner's mother was home, ESL and didn't know her rights), saying it was a Pit Bull; AC got wind of the location of a sibling and showed up with MULTIPLE police officers and ACO's and removed the dog by force.

Owner of second dog hired a lawyer for him and the first dog, and THIS is what the city offered.

They get to keep their dogs, but they are declared dangerous and must be muzzled at all times!!!! WTF?! For dogs and people that did NOTHING wrong. There was no offence or crime commited. :cuss:

Wow! I guess I shouldn't be surprised. It seems he has no respect for life at all, canine or human.
