Ban Pitbulls?

While googling today for a piece of legislation on apartments - this page popped up - some pretty odd views from readers of the Brantford paper:

I checked out those 'stats' that Ernie got from

Animal Advocates of B.C. They are U.S. stats, not Cdn., & they are for the years 1997, & 1998 only. They are Not across the board stats! And they sure aren't Canadian! And none of them specify the # children as fatalities.

The stupid thing is my daughter & i walk Staffy & Pit crosses at the Brantford shelter all the time. They are about the best behaved dogs in the shelter. It's too bad these jerks don't actually meet a Pit or Staffy, instead of only reading about them.

If I got all my opinions about _________ (pick any racial, religious, or cultural group here) from the newspapers, I'd probably have a poor opinion of them.

Check out the Aniaml Advocatres of B.C. web site re: Cheech & see how 'awful & dangerous' they think Rotti crossbreds are. ;-)

Oh I know. I run a rescue and am in Toronto and GTA shelters all the time, I have no worries with the Pitbulls and Staffy and crosses that I meet, but I won't stick my hand in with any little white dogs LOL!
