BSL ALERT: Sonoma, California
Posted on August 17, 2011

In the wake of a tragic fatal mauling in Pacifica, California, Sonoma City Councilwoman, Joanne Sanders, wants the city to reconsider regulating pit bulls and other dog breeds. Sanders said she supports banning pit bulls within city limits, and has previously support an attempt to enact BSL in Sonoma. California state law prohibits breed specific legislation in any form other than breed specific MSN. While Sonoma County has already enacted MSN for pit bulls for its unincorporated areas, the city of Sonoma is not included.

Regardless of your position on spay/neuter, any law that targets certain breeds of dogs is breed specific legislation, and is plagued with all the same flaws of any law that regulates breeds based on their appearance.

Please send your POLITE, RESPECTFUL and INFORMATIVE opposition to breed specific legislation to the officials of Sonoma County listed below.

Sonoma councilwoman wants crackdown on pit bullsBy DEREK MOORE

A Sonoma councilwoman said she wants the city to reconsider regulating pit bulls and other dog breeds after a pregnant Pacifica woman was mauled to death last week by her family pet.

Joanne Sanders asked city staff at Monday’s City Council meeting to research options for regulating what she called vicious dogs.

In an interview Tuesday, Sanders said she personally supports banning pit bulls within city limits.

“I think pit bulls are a great start,” she said.

Sanders said the city previously considered but failed to enact legislation regulating certain dog breeds.

She said her motivation to bring the issue back was sparked by last Thursday’s attack in Pacifica that killed Darla Napora, 32.

Authorities said Napora bled to death after she was mauled by her pit bull.

The attack re-ignited the long-running debate over whether pit bulls and other dog breeds are inherently dangerous. The dog involved in the Pacifica attack was an unneutered 2-year-old male pit bull.

A state law enacted in 2005 gave California communities the power to require spaying and neutering for specific dog breeds. The law was passed following a series of high-profile pit bull attacks in San Francisco, Sonoma County and other parts of the state.

The county of Sonoma, as well as several cities within the county, have additional penalties for the owners of dangerous pets, including registration fees, fines and a requirement that owners of dogs judged vicious must procure $500,000 in liability insurance if they want to keep their pet.

The law also requires spaying and neutering of pit bull-related breeds once they reach four months of age.

Sanders said she plans to bring the issue before the City Council at an upcoming meeting.

“This is a charged issue for sure,” she said.
