Discussion of Dog Ban Comes Up at Vets Conference

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Some cities across the mainland have taken action against certain breeds of man's best friend.

That's after some violent dog attacks. So could Hawaii adopt a similar ban?

It's a hot topic at the annual American Veterinary Medical Association Convention, which is being held in Honolulu.

Local vets say banning certain dogs is not an effective way to prevent an attack.

"We get bitten by chihuahuas and fox terriers far more often than pit bulls and rottweilers," said Eric Ako, veterinarian.

But cities in 13 states have banned dogs like pit bulls, rottweilers and dobermans.

The issue will likely continue into the next legislative session. The Hawaii Veterinarians Medical Association will become more active in the political arena.

"Moving forward towards legislation such as preventing or banning, tethering or tying up dogs which has been found to be a major factor in causing dogs to behave in a dangerous fashion," said Ako.

He believes dogs that are violent should be identified and placed on a registry. That way, people know exactly where these dangerous dogs are located.

Dog owners we talked to say animals should not be held responsible for their actions.

"Well I don't think it has to do with the breed. It has to do with the ownership of the dogs," said Dwight Synan, dog owner.

"Why take the fun away from the dog when the owners are responsible for them being angry, upset?" said Tony McInerny, dog owner.

They say other cities that have adopted bans are barking up the wrong tree.
