Over the past few days, we've been hearing that a Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) may be passed in Michigan to ban residents in the entire state from owning a Pit Bull. If passed, all Pit Bulls in the area would need to be spayed/neutered within 3-4 years and within 10 years, no one would be able to own a Pit Bull. It left me wondering what would happen to all the Pit Bulls who were spayed within those first 4 years? They would be able to live for 6 more years in Michigan, and then what?
But I no longer have to worry because the bill was turned down! The article is actually very supportive of Pit Bulls and definitely gives a great view of why there shouldn't be a BSL anywhere. I hope that since the bill didn't pass, maybe they will pass a bill that requires Pit Bull owners to take training or have the dog certified as a good citizen so that the attacks don't continue to happen. Like it says in the story, there are no bad dogs, just bad owners! If you'd like to read the story you can here
