To whom it may concern:
The State of Washington is one of the hottest spots in the USA for BSL.
the State has a non-BS law, the state government has allowed cities/towns and
municipalities to legislate their own laws, which supercede state law. These
towns have enacted laws, which by name or description of a dog make it legal
for them to confiscate and destroy your pet. Under such laws the legal travel
over state highways through these towns with a breed again described or named
in their laws makes you a criminal. You have never thought of yourself, as
anything but a law-abiding citizen I’ll bet. Well in these towns harboring a
“dangerous dog” (by his breed or description alone) means you are breaking
are 17 cities, towns or municipalities that carry BSL throughout the state.
Many will say, “It doesn’t affect us, our breed is not mentioned” to
this I say “Not mentioned YET”. I believe the goal of BSL is to outlaw ALL
dogs. Not just a few. You see once these “few” dogs are listed it is very
easy to add to the list. No reason to vote on anything they just decide that
this weeks “media monster” will be added. What’s next the dog that walks
with a funny gait?
you know that someone can come to your house and say what breed you have in
some of these towns? So you cut down the wrong tree and made your neighbor
angry, he reports you have a Pit Bull on your property. In comes the sheriff
and you say “no this is a boxer” (for instance) and show him is AKC
papers, stating his breed. Well guess what people – that dog is between 20
and 110 pounds, he has a short coat, a broad skull, a pronounce cheek and
looks to the sheriff to be a dog described in the law. You refuse to turn over
your dog known as “illegal property” in this town and you can be arrested.
Then the dog is confiscated held for evidence at which time he could then
legally be declared a “described breed” and later destroyed.
Animal rights movement is for one goal – to eliminate pets all together.
When a town goes for BSL be assured they will have the backing of all the
animal rights people.
state it best – in their own words –
NEWKIRK (Chicago Daily Herald, March 1, 1990)
Magazine, August 1986)
sure isn’t stated here “we are after the safety of humans and see SBT’s
as a harmful animal” they clearly say, “We want to stop the breeding of
animals.” Period – plain and simple – NO DOGS what so ever. NO Companion
animals at all – let alone animals for food, such as beef or pork or
chicken! So meat lovers what’s for dinner tonight?
be aware that BSL is not aimed at a few breeds but the Dog Kingdom on a whole.
They know that saying NO DOGS would get everyone up in arms but by listing the
“Media Monsters” first then Joe-Public backs it. Now Joe-Public doesn’t
realize his dog is next! Education is our key to stop this “…absolutely
abysmal situation” !!!
just because your breed is not mentioned right now, do not turn your back on
those that are.
