City Council and Mayor: Restrict fighting breeds of dogs in Seattle

      Ellen Taft

      Seattle, WA

By supporting legislation to spay and neuter all fighting breeds and making it illegal to acquire a new Fighting Breed dog, we seek to eliminate all fighting breeds. In addition we seek to impose safety precautions such as muzzles when these dogs are walked in public spaces to protect people and pets from being attacked by them.

I urge you to pass the Protection of Animals and People Act, proposed by Families and Dogs Against Fighting Breeds. http://fdafb.org/the-legislation.htm

      I don't understand why it is so hard for legislation to see the obvious. How many maulings and deaths is it going to take? This is an epidemic it is not only in Washinton. It is all over and the stories are the gruesome story over and over nad over AGAIN. WAKE UP D.C. SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN!

      I visit Seattle often and am very much concerned about my personal safety in Seattle if controls are not imposed on fighting dogs like Pit Bulls and their cross's, they need to be muzzled and no longer allowed to be breed till they cease to be, then i can feel safe on your streets once again.!!

      By all safety standards this breed of dog presents an unacceptable risk.

      How sad to see the usual cyber-bullying from the pit pushers - in any case, it is critical that do something about the daily attacks by pit bulls. Up through the 1970s, deaths from dog attack amounted to maybe 3 a year - but in the 1980s, the animal farm foundation and others began pushing pit bulls as family pets. The results have been disastrous. Evert few hours an american is attacked and injured by a pit bull. Every 5 or 6 days an american loses a limb or an appendage in a pit bull attack. Every 2 weeks on average, an american is attacked and mauled to death by a pit bull. Thousands of innocent family pets are brutally mauled to death by loose pit bulls, and with every attack, the pit pushers bully, accuse and blame the victims. Hasn't there been enough bloodshed already? let's end the madness! Municipalities like Denver and Miami-Dade have shown the way.
