Ban the Ban
Breed Specific-Legislation or BSL, is the term for laws created to regulate and even ban specific breeds. These breeds consist of American pit bull terriers, german shepherds, english bull terriers, rottweilers, dalmatians, american bulldogs and many more dogs that resemble these breeds. BSL was created to minimize “dangerous breed” attacks on humans and other animals. However, there has yet to be any evidence or facts that prove that BSL is an effective way of preventing dog fights and attacks. Owners of these breeds are required to follow ban regulations and are at risk of legal fees, housing issues and even the surrendering of their dog(s). There are over 700 U.S cities that have enacted this and my goal with this petition is to work towards getting rid of the ban and stopping it from being enacted in other U.S. cities.
