Darrell Steinberg responds:

Darrell Steinberg

Thank you for your recent communication in opposition to the gathering and killing of pit bulls in Sikeston, Missouri. I understand that you oppose this practice because many tamed pit bulls have been wrongfully slaughtered, although they were loving pets. I appreciate legislative suggestions, and understand that you are suggesting legislation that would outlaw the slaughtering of pit bulls in the state of Missouri.

Although I share your views in support of the humane treatment of animals, I am unable to comment on legislation in the state of Missouri. There are currently no bills in California concerning this matter. I wish you all the best in continuing your fight to eliminate cruelty to animals.

Sincerely,

DARRELL STEINBERG
President pro Tempore
6th Senate District
