Statewide BDL in Mississippi?
Plus, more on "pit bull" and the American Pit Bull Terrier
January 27, 2015
Attorney Fred Kray, cohost Kris Diaz, and the rest of the PBLNR crew discuss a house bill in Mississippi which would define all "pit bulls" as dangerous dogs. Read the full text of the bill (.pdf). The bill, in addition to the typically vague definition of "pit bull," grants law enforcement unusually broad powers to enter private property on the suspicion that a "dangerous dog" is being harbored on the premises in violation of the proposed law. Thankfully, rumor has it that this bill will be killed on February 3rd.
And speaking of definitions of "pit bull," we will be joined by GP Juarez of the American Preservation Dog Registry to continue exploring the definition of "pit bull" vis-a-vis the American Pit Bull Terrier. Mr. Juarez addresses paper hanging, identifying a dog without papers, and the tenacity (or lack thereof) of behavioral breed characterists.
In other news, a 20+ year old breed ban in Roeland, KS, was repealed.
Last, but not least, Yvette Van Veen addresses the idea that a dog's aggression problem can be linked to a vague concept of connection with the dog's owner. Dogs with medical issues aside, their is always a trigger.
