Pulse24 Poll is not in our favour anymore

Its 5:07 and the poll does not look good for us. Actually not for any large breed dog. People have become afraid because of all this.


No, I think itís the owners, not the dogs, who are at fault 16%
I support muzzle and leash laws, but not a ban 4%
Itís too hard to identify the breed, the ban wonít work 0%
Yes, I think the breed is dangerous and should be banned 35%
I think all dangerous breeds should be banned 42%
Other 0%
Date of Poll: 11/16/2004



If you haven't voted vote now. www.Pulse24.com

Although that is a little bit disheartening, one thing to keep in mind:I'd say most of the problem is that people don't understand the breed. If you asked those in favour of the ban if they agree that the dog was bred to be a killer, and can not be trusted with people, I'd be willing to bet the majority of them would agree. This is the real issue. Or rather, one of the issues. These call-in shows are great, but what we really need is actually experts talking about the dogs, and things like thier series last week, discussing real stats.

OMG!!! I am watching live stream of CityPulse online right now... there was just a little segment for tonight's episode... They showed the discussion from legislature today - Michael Bryant was LAUGHED at because he tried to cheat and pick the pit bull!!! Many Ministers LAUGHED at him for his cheat... and even Alex made a little gab at MB for trying to cheat!!!

He's going to come out with his guns ready!! I bet he's PEED right off!!! He looks like a TOTAL boob!!!

I thought MB had refused to come on the show; And this pole doesnt make any sence to me all the others were positive am I paranoid or do you think MB ordered all his office workers or even the whole provincial office staff to vote on there comp. No that would be too immature for him hmmmmmmmm

This poll allows you to vote multiple times. I bet Bryant has staff members voting all day, because he now has a huge beef with CityTV.

Bryant in the clips that were shown looks like a complete fool but a fool with the power to destroy many dogs....
I've re-dialed so far about 50 times,keep calling and redial as many times as you can
