In support of Laing Alton’s opinion of pit bulls, let me say this: In 2005, Ontario banned pit bulls. Regretfully, since then these vicious dogs and moronic owners have made a beeline for B.C.
Having been attacked twice in the past three years, I am now convinced more than ever that these dogs are untrustworthy and totally vicious. In both attacks, the ineffective commands and red-faced screams from the dogs’ owners had no effect on stopping their dog. Fortunately, a shot of bear spray worked.
Is there anything more disturbing on the news than seeing yet another mauled, stitched-up, disfigured and near-dismembered child of yet another unprovoked pit bull attack? Each time there is an attack and the dog is destroyed, the owners act in shock that their dog did such a thing.
My friend who works as a vet aid told me 99 per cent of the attacked animals that come into their clinic are from pit bull attacks. At the very least, they should be constantly muzzled and always on a strong leash made of steel.
