Tell Winnipeg to Stop Canine Profiling

    1. Petition by

      Best Friends Animal Society

Winnipeg, Canada has a breed discriminatory law banning "pit bulls." Breed discriminatory laws fail to enhance public safety. Studies of pre and post breed ban dog bite rates in the United Kingdom and Spain concluded that their pit bull breed bans had no effect whatsoever on reducing dog bites.  

Not only are breed specific laws ineffective, they also are extremely expensive to enforce. How do you tell if a dog is a "pit bull" and not a short-haired muscular mutt? Indeed, Hiawatha, Iowa repealed their pit bull terrier ban because of identification problems and expense. Topeka, Kansas also recently repealed their pit bull terrier ban for the same reasons.  

Please help Canadian animal advocates by asking the Winnipeg Councillors to repeal their breed discriminatory law.

      This is like saying "Ban Hispanic people because they cause more trouble than others" INCORRECT AND WRONG STUPIDITY. Stop this nonsense.

      It amazes me that people can show discrmination towards a dog! Wake up people what are we teaching our children? Please stop the problem where it begins with the horrible people who host and bet on dog fights. We have enough needless death, please use the resources to stop the real criminals.

      Dog breeds get a reputation based on what the owners train them for, not based on the dog itself. Sure, some breeds can be more aggressive, but it doesn't make them dangerous

      Leave the bulldogs alone and go after these mean little chiauaus, whoever you spell it. If you have ever been around one, you know what I mean. JK don't ban any dog. They only want love. If raised with love, they show love.
