Pit bull sterilization enforced in San Bernardino County

By The News West staff
Published: Tuesday, August 10, 2010 12:37 AM MDT
SAN BERNARDINO - County Animal Care-Control Bureau officers will begin enforcing mandatory pit bull spay/neuter in unincorporated areas on Friday.

If a pit bull or pit bull type dog is not sterilized by this date, a citation may be issued.

The fine for the first offense is $100, the second offense $200. A third offense within one year carries a $500 fine.

The bureau currently issues $50 vouchers to residents of the unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County to encourage the spaying-neutering of all dogs. To further assist owners of pit bull and pit bull-type dogs to comply, the bureau will make available 300 spay and neuter vouchers worth an additional $100.

This will provide an owner of a pit bull or pit bull type dog with a total of $150 toward the spaying or neutering surgery for their pit bull-type dogs. The vouchers will be provided on a first come, first served basis and are redeemable at pre-approved veterinary clinics that have agreed to accept the vouchers.

It's a Good Idea!!

I'm actually glad that the county of San Bernardino passed this law b/c many owners are irresponsible not saying that all are, so don't be mad if you live in San Bernardino. San Bernardino is where most irresponsible owners, have way too many Pit Bulls (Mixes) and just leave them in the back yard with no attention given to the so called pets. Many BYB's as well, not the responsible breeders that actually care for the puppy's. No disrespect, I'm sure San Bernardino has some great Pit owners, but for the most part the irresponsible owners caused this to the entire county which is somewhat good to stop just any BYB that is doing it for $$$. I think as long as San Bernardino doesn't banned the Pit breed then ppl in the county shouldn't be too pissed off about spaying/neutering their beloved pets.

I'd be very mad if something like this happened around me! What? One day will we all have to just keep running with our dogs to find a safe place to live? How crazy is that? An underground network or something? Maybe we can mandate sterilization of people based on their financial status, or intelligence of lack of parental guidance.........what's next? Sound like Hitler on the loose.

Even as a freedom fighter I understand the mentality behind this...

Matter a fact I may have suggested such on this forum. That unless your a professional breeder you shouldn't have APBTs intact, I mean how many scatterbred dogs are out there ruining the name of the breed because of our freedom to jack sht up? Your a first time dog owner what the hell do you know about a APBT? I can't stand ignorance and this type of law is because the MAJORITY of the population is ignorant.

Everyone says don't believe everything you hear and see on TV, but people believe everything they hear and see on TV.
