After complaints about free-roaming “pit bulls” Coeur D’Alene, Idaho is considering restricting or outright banning “pit bulls.” How does a free-roaming dog problem, which is usually due to irresponsible owners and a lack of Animal Control personnel, become a “pit bull” problem? And since “pit bulls” aren’t really the problem, the real problem of free-roaming dogs won’t be solved by restricting “pit bulls.” After all, these free-roaming “pit bulls” either already don’t have traceable owners or the owners they do have already aren’t abiding by the existing law.

Please write the city council of Coeur D’Alene at the address below and politely tell them that breed-specific restrictions or bans are unenforceable and ineffective. A free-roaming dog problem can quickly be solved by enforcing existing leash laws and stressing responsible pet ownership.

    EVEN THE THOUGHT OF BANNING CERTAIN BREEDS IN MY CITY IS SICKENING. THERE ARE REALLY GOOD DOGS AND DOG OWNERS IN THIS CITY WHO SHOULD NOT BE PUNISHED FOR UNRESPONSIBLE PET OWNERS ACTIONS. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS. RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERS WILL FIGHT BACK!!!!
