Every time I see a headline spouting new rules and stiffer penalties in relation to animals, the hair stands up on the back of my neck. With new rules there seems to be more discrimination and breed restrictions going on, when time and time again the experts will tell you BSL doesn't work.
So this story was great to read. It seems they tried last year to tighten the restrictions on breeding and raise the fines for not following the law, the special restrictions against pit bull type dogs (huh) was not in the new laws. Animal lovers in the area raised so much cain, the BSL part was pulled before the County Commission passed the laws.
So you see, public outcry can change the course of our government. We just have to yell louder than our opponents.
