For additional accurate information on the public safety Danger of Pit Bull Type Dogs visit:
A pit bull BSL works EVERYWHERE it is useful in almost eliminating all serious dog attacks that maim, disfigure, dismember, maul, cripple or kill, this is a simply proven fact in all cases.
The number of pit bulls is dramatically reduced as are the numbers of them put to death.
In ALL BSL's all existing pit bull type dogs are grandfathered in until they die off naturally, only NEW pit bull type dogs are not allowed in.
In NO case are they put down or even forced to leave the community if they are a grandfathered in pit bull type dog if they are registered.!
When a BSL is brought in you usually have 30 days to register your pit bull type dog covered by the Ban and it is grandfathered in and you are allowed to keep it with restrictions like short leash by an adult, muzzled, kenneled, 6 figure liability insurance, fixed, chipped, signage etc.
If you don't register it in 30 days or you bring one in after the Ban is in effect it is confiscated and put down, as it would be perverted & sick to ship a dangerous threat to public safety off to another community and be fine with that as long as your community was safe from them, that would simply be wrong.
The need to have BSL is to have a preemptive capability to avoid a pit bull attack from happening due to it's extremely savage consequences.
It is enacted against all pit bulls as they all have the genetic DNA propensity to carry out these horrific attacks that are non existent in 99% of all other breeds, ban the breed and you ban the deed, simple as that.
Dealing with an attack after the fact is simply not acceptable due to the horrific nature of said attacks.!
With any other breed other then Rottweiler's, wolf hybrids and Akita's and a few others in very small numbers it is not a naturally genetic reality for them to carry out such horrifying attacks.
Hence they need to be dealt with in an aggressive reactive modality where all of the breed are not looked on as one but rather based on the actions of the individual misbehaving dog.
This can be done in a very aggressive proactive manner so that as soon as a dog like a lab lets say starts behaving inappropriately severe consequences can be brought to bare on the owner and their dog in an escalating manner as needed to deal with a situation that has developed.
This duel track approach can deal with the pits issue as other normal dog breeds can be dealt with as well so vicious dogs of other mainstream breeds are also held accountable for their actions.
There should be mandatory Spay/Neuter programs for all breeds but clearly the one that needs it the most and where the most change would be effected would be with the Pit Bull type dog.
There is very little cost difference no matter if you have a pit bull type dog BSL Ban or not.
There is a very impactful cost free indirect outcome as invariably the pit bull type dog owner will be far more careful and in fact go underground to avoid the consequences of not adhering to a BSL Ban such as fines & or losing their dog or even having it put down, this tends to focus their minds and motivates them to be in compliance.
In effect out of sight reduces interaction with any pit bull type dogs in general for both the 2 & 4 legged legitimate members of the community which greatly increases their daily safety and dramatically reduces the possibility of pit bull attacks.
All this at not one cent of extra cost.
AC officers will be more available to carry out routine street and park patrols not having to deal with constant pit bull type dog mauling's.
This is their normal activity and will allow them to as they enforce the normal leash and dog at large laws to enforce the BSL Ban at the same time at no extra cost.
Simple they see a pit bull type dog they pick it up, a minor cost to bring about increased public safety, & as they go more and more underground this cost will drop sharply to the level of being moot from a budget perspective.
As well neighbors on the street will know if a pit bull type dog is illegally present and can call the city AC to report this allowing the animal to be removed, a simple, clean and efficient modality to find, fix and remove any pit bull type dog illegally in the community.
If the owners keep their pit bull type dogs in the basement or take them out only very early in the morning or very late at night this will dramatically enhance the community's safety cost free as the possibility of the public interacting with a pit bull type dog is reduced to fractionally what it normally would be the case in normal daytime hours.
There would be no extras kenneling cost after you pick up a pit bull type dog, you put down a stray right away, if there is ownership proof an immediate choice is given to the owner, give it up to be put down right away or if they appeal it in the courts they pay the kenneling cost.
If done this way the expense of kenneling is also moot.
Done this way any Pit Bull type dog BSL Ban is easily enforceable by any community, the only requirement to make this a reality is to have the courage to simply carry out said enforcement in the face of screams, rants and raves by the pit bull advocates.
