It's just a result of irresponsible people needing to be told how to live their lives. In this country people are proving more and more everyday that freedom and responsibility is just too much for them to handle.
I don't understand what they mean by "dangerous dog breeds". Any dog can be dangerous if not properly socialised (I don't mean turning your dog into a socialist ) Afterall Britain is the reason breeds like the original bull dog and pitbull terriers exist. How do you suppose the modern fat, short, malformed English Bulldog came to be? It was a result of the Brits not having anymore use for the larger more agile working bulldogs they had been breeding for centuries prior. After bull baiting and bear baiting was outlawed the Brits had no more use for such a tough hardworking breed. They took the original butcher's bulldog and scaled it down to the now deformed useless bulldog - the modern English Bulldog.
One thing that often gets forgotten today about certain old time working breeds like Pitbulls, dogo argentinos, American bulldogs, and old southern white bulldogs is that one of the dominant traits cultivated by the old time breeders was the trait of non-agressiveness towards humans. As forocious as these dogs may have been in their tasks performed, they had to be people friendly. There was no way that the handlers and trainers could work with these dogs if they weren't socialised properly. Fast forward to today and many unscrupulous people train these dogs for things they were never intended for. For all the things people today want in life, many people just have a very difficult time taking care of their stuff, including pets. While the government shouldn't overstep it's bounds, it leaves a perfect opportunity for them to come in and take over what the people can't handle. Of course the government isn't any better with stuff. Maybe the Brits need to have a tea party of thier own real soon
Today's headlines read, "Hunter Dies of Heart Attack!"
I don't know how many times I have seen that headline in the past 16 years that I have lived in Colorado.
I moved here in 1994 via the U.S. Army to Ft. Carson, Colorado. The "Mountain Post" as it is sometimes called.
When I arrived here, in pretty good shape, the unit told me that I could not participate in P.T. (physical training) for at least 30 days. Now, I had just come from an overseas tour in Korea and was stationed in the...
