Stop San Diego from banning pit bulls

Stop San Diego from banning pit bulls - National American Pit Bull | Examiner.com



The city of San Diego is considering a pit bull ban. Since the recent attack involving a 75 year old woman, the same debate has erupted throughout the city and beyond.

The arguments cite an ill researched Texas dog bite study released by the U.S. Center for Disease Control in 2000. J. Thomas, who authors the site, Stop BSL.com, has been studying and writing about pit bulls and dog behavior since 2000. Thomas questions this and other dog bite studies by heading right for the jugular.

Opening with a quote from Benjamin Disraeli, 'There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics,' the piece references Jim Schuermann, Staff Epidemiologist of the Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Surveillance Group of the Texas Department of State Health Services.

According to Schuermann, “this program has been discontinued. There was never a legislative mandate which required animal control agencies to submit reports on Severe Animal Bites. Although the Zoonosis Control Division highly encouraged all animal control agencies to voluntarily submit these reports, we would receive only 500 to 600 reports a year, and none of the major metropolitan areas (Amarillo, Brownsville, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Laredo, Lubbock, or San Antonio) participated.”

This dog bite ‘study’ put together by Texas medical doctors postulates about pit bulls and dog behavior from emergency room patients admitted over a 15-year period. The medical professionals proudly add that this compilation contributed to the Denver pit bull ban which destroyed over 3500 family pets.

PBRC, Pit Bull Rescue Central, calmly offers the facts.

"Breed specific ordinances are quick fixes and not a sufficient long term solution for the following reasons:

1. Dog problems are generally problems with owner responsibility and are not limited to breeds. When breeds are singled out as dangerous or vicious, responsibility is removed from the dog owner which is where it belongs. Irresponsible people are also less likely to follow the law - and as a result, everyone has to suffer.

2. By limiting the ability of citizens to own certain breeds, responsible law abiding citizens will shy away from those breeds. These are the types of owners that communities need to encourage, not drive away.

3. Communities that have instituted such bans often find that the irresponsible owners and the criminals who use dogs for illegal purposes simply switch to another breed.

4. Breeds and mixes are hard to identify and often dogs are mis labeled and destroyed based on paranioa and prejudice and also punishes those that are good canine citizens. Many breeds function as assistance dogs for handicapped owners, search and rescue dogs, drug-sniffing dogs, police dogs, etc. and drives them out of the community.

The American Veterinary Medical Association and several state veterinary medical associations oppose breed-specific legislation for just this reason.

5. The dog most restricted is the "pit bull." A pit bull is a type of dog, not a recognized breed. See the breed information page for more detail.

6. Passage of laws that are only enforced through complaints cause two problems: 1) they create disrespect for the law if authorities require compliance only upon complaint, and 2) they provide ammunition for neighborhood feuds."

The Union Tribune is instigating a pit bull debate in San Diego and
