There’s a lot of nonsense and hysteria coming out now on this issue in Ontario, and it’s time to bring some sense of reality to this debate.
In my city there have been 900 reported dog bites since 2001. A grand total of FIVE of those bites have been attributed to Pit Bulls.
The province needs to recognize that any dog in the wrong hands can be abused and trained into anti-social behaviour. This ban amounts to Profiling. It won’t work. We should be punishing those that would use their dog as a weapon, not the dogs themselves.
