Is Purdue’s Alan Beck Pushing BSL Via His Student and Debunked Pit Bull Urban Mythology?
Perhaps you’ve had the same experience, but some of the most clueless people I ever met in my life held Ph.D.s. It’s like they’re idiot savants. They claim to know a lot about one topic, and even that may be suspect, but are ignorant everywhere else. It appears such may be the […]
“Pit Bull” Heroically Gnaws Owners Toes Off to Save His Life, Is Painted as Villain and Joke by the Media
We’ve seen a lot of people say a lot of stupid things when it comes to so-called “pit bulls,” much of it coming from the media, but in the last few days, I have never seen so many articles, and so much disinformation, about one incident that involved a “pit bull.” This time, the […]
Pennsylvania HB 82 Would Force Animal Owners to Give Up Their Animals Whether Adjudicated Guilty of a Crime or not
Editor’s note: It is contrary to the law, to say the least, that an animal owner would be forced to relinquish his/her animals regardless of whether charges of animal cruelty are dismissed or not. With the repeated false-claim reports of animal cruelty against law-abiding dog owners and shelter operators lately, HB 82 opens up […]
Chicago and Its Media Continue to Push Farce that Dogs in 3 Year-Old’s Attack Were “Pit Bulls”
As I’ve been writing, so-called “pit bull” attacks that occurred repeatedly in California (almost all of which were drug-related, but which were reported by the media as due to “pit bulls”) coincidentally, or maybe not so coincidentally, happened just as Riverside County was considering a mandatory spay/neuter law and as it was suggested that California […]
Iraq War Vet’s “Pit Bull” is Shot, Killed When Buffalo, New York Police Bust Down Wrong Door
Editor’s note: Perhaps the Buffalo, New York Narcotics Division could benefit from the training that Colorado police are now required to have in discerning aggressive versus non-aggressive canine behavior. That or perhaps someone should give them a map. From the New York Daily News: An Iraq war veteran is reeling after cops busted through […]
Australia: Worldwide Support Increases to Save ‘Kerser’ from Senseless Death Because of “Breed”
From the Monash Weekly: …The campaign to save the dog, known as Kerser, has received international attention due to an online petition which has received more than 23,000 signatures. Kerser was identified by Monash council officers as a pit bull last December, when he was seized after breaking into a neighbours backyard. Under Victorian law […]
Chicago Man Beats “Pit Bull” to Death over $3.98 Torn Shirt!
I swear someone must be paying psychos in Chicago to be cruel to animals in some kind of sick, underground reality TV, amateur video-type show or something. As if the countless articles about a man having sex with a “pit bull” inside Chicago’s Animal Care and Control weren’t enough <shiver>, now we have the […]
“Pit Bull” “Pack” Maulings the Latest Craze for Spring in California, New Mexico, Florida, and South Carolina
It is perhaps not so surprising that states that prohibit breed-specific legislation (BSL) like California, Florida, and Illinois, have seen “pit bull” attacks one after another recently, almost as if they were in someone’s sights to repeal those BSL prohibitions. Why else would the media and elected officials ignore the obvious problems — the […]
Is the Sun-Sentinel’s Gary Stein Advocating for Hitlerian Gun Control and Radical Animal Rightism?
March 10, 2013 update: In response to a torrent of responses to Mr. Stein’s ridiculous opinion piece last week (and of course the publicity he and the Sun-Sentinel were looking for on the backs of “pit bulls” and their owners whom Stein had maligned, which serves to generate ad revenue), Mr. Stein unapologetically wrote another […]
Stupid is as Stupid Does: Center, Missouri Passes Breed Ban Based on Wildly Inaccurate Information
On June 2, 2010, the Center, Missouri City Council passed a vicious dog law which simultaneously banned “pit bulls” from the city limits. “Pit bull” owners were given 30 days to remove their dogs with no grandfather clause (or what is often mistakenly called a grandfather clause). While recognizing in their own ordinance […]
