Vets Unite To Oppose Banning Dog Breeds

This is one statement I am happy to put my name to:

‘The Australian Veterinary Association’s SA president Philip Stott says adopting more stringent breed specific legislation will not reduce the risk of attacks by aggressive dogs.

“We know that all dogs have the potential to react aggressively if scared or threatened but most dogs don’t bite people, so the banning of some breeds over others is not effective,” Dr Stott said in a statement.

“We really need to tackle the things that people do that may contribute to canine aggression.”‘

So true.

Did I hear someone say Pit Bull?
