stop breed specific legislation in texas

Ex judge and Texas attorney, Cynthia Stevens Kent, is going to the Texas legislature in January to try to pass a law that not only bans the ownership of pitbulls in Texas, meaning that all registered pitbulls would be confiscated and euthanized, but also wants to make it a 3rd degree felony if you are caught owning one. There are no bad dogs, only bad owners. The government should not be allowed to tell us what breed of dog we are allowed to own, and it is not fair to crucify an entire breed because of a few bad incidents, all caused by irresponsible and abusive owners. The only way to make sure this law doesn't pass is for the government to hear our voices. This petition can speak for thousands upon thousands of innocent animals. It can save their lives. Pitbulls now...what breed will be next?

  • Lynn Baker Please consider the neglectful owners and how that leads to gentle dogs becoming dangerous because of the treatment they receive such as being tied outside continuously, malnourishment and lack of human interaction. Let's educate the dog owners instead of banning a specific dog breed based on an incident caused by the neglectful dog owners.

  • Jolayne Justice This is so reactive. A recent study from hospitals and ERs showed that more people are bitten by Labradors than any other breed, pit bulls were behind several other breeds

  • Betty Parks This is wrong in so many ways! It's not always the dogs fault but they have to suffer the consequences of ignorant or evil owners! You obviously haven't looked any further into Pitbulls than the headlines!
