Victory

Sherry Stinson: We started our petition on January 12 after being notified an Oklahoma legislator was attempting to pass a bill allowing cities to ban any dog. Mobilizing the troops, we created a Facebook page, created a sample letter for people to send to their elected officials, then promptly headed to Change.org to create a petition. Less than one week later, over 5,000 signatures. Two weeks and almost 10,000. We were notified this morning the bill author is abandoning the bill. “We're not going to move forward on it,” said Anderson, R-Enid. “There's just too much opposition to it. I certainly didn't anticipate there would be as many people as vocal about it as they have been." It was a very sweet victory for us and all our furry friends.

If passed, SB32 will overturn existing Oklahoma law which currently prohibits breed discrimination. SB32 will allow cities to restrict ownership of any breed of dog by citizens within municipal limits. This will create breed-specific legislation (BSL) in Oklahoma.

      The only problem with Pitbulls is the person at the other end of the leash. They make wonderful loving pets and are also used as pet therapy dogs for old and young alike.

      Please do not ban these lovely animals.

      It's a cop-out to blame the pet i.e. pitt bulls, because everyone knows that a pet is the responsible of the owner. the owner's job is to train and socialize their pet. Blame the owner not the pet. All dogs are descendants of wolves and once domesticated needed to be taught manners. Responsible owners do that! It's not the dog, it's the owner!!!!
