One of the most cited web-sites about dog bites and fatalities is dogsbite.org. However many people don't know the origins of this site or realize how it's so full of distortions and outright lies.
Because of its popularity it's also one of the best sites for fomenting outright vicious hatred of pit bull type dogs.
Here is a site about:
The Truth about the web-site "dogsbite.org", which is run by Colleen Lynn.
Colleen is a web-designer, and at one time even worked as a "phone psychic."
Here is an analysis of the initial incident that prompted Collen Lynn to start her vendetta against pit bull type dogs, while ignoring potential dangerous dog laws that could actually help the situation.
What is BSL?
Breed-specific legislation (BSL) bans OR restricts certain types of dogs based on their appearance because they are perceived as “dangerous” breeds or types of dogs.
BSL is an ethical failure, and it is a public safety failure.
This is why the state of Ohio repealed its BSL law! And many other jurisdictions are doing the same!
Breed-specific legislation applies only to dogs of a certain appearance. It does not take into account how the owner has raised, trained, or managed the dog. It does not take into account the dog’s actual behavior.
Why Is BSL Wrong?
BSL does not improve public safety or prevent dog bites, it only gives the superficial illusion of helping.
BSL ignores the plight of victims and potential victims of non-targeted breeds.
BSL is very costly to enforce yet provides little benefit.
BSL requires each and every dog to be identified as a breed—something that has proven impossible to do accurately and objectively.
BSL makes targeted breeds more desirable to irresponsible and criminal owners.
BSL does nothing to make irresponsible dog owners accountable.
BSL punishes responsible dog owners.
Not a single canine welfare organization supports BSL, and this includes the American Veterinary Medical Association.
