Attorney Fred Kray, cohost Kris Diaz, and the rest of the PBLNR crew welcome Dennis Tabella, Director of Defender of Animals, a plaintiff in the successful litigation against the city of Pawtucket, which attempted to keep its breed ban after the state prohibited breed-discriminatory legislation. Mr. Tabella addresses the judge's ruling and the question of whether or not the city of Pawtucket will appeal.

In BDL news, we discuss the media firestorm that a notice to pit bull and rottweiler owning residents of Moreauville, LA, created. The town issued a notice that pit bulls and rottweilers were now banned and must be removed from the town by December first or be taken by police for "disposition." The ban is currently stayed until a town meeting to reconsider the ban. See for more details

Finally, Yvette Van Veen addresses a serious problem—what to do when your dogs start fighting with each other.
