What Happens to Pit Bulls Now? Montreal Takes Action
What happens to pit bulls now? Montreal takes action. Montreal has based a strict law against any pit bulls, or any breed associated with the pit bull breed. How did this law get started you may wonder? About three months ago a woman was viscously attacked and unfortunately did not survive. Montreal took the final fought last night, Tuesday September 27th, 2016. There is already a plan set to challenge this vote.
Now that this law was passed in Montreal with a 37-32 vote, current owners face new laws. Current owners of pit bulls must now have to get a $150 registration on file and get their pet fixed. The list is a mile long for this breed and their owners. However, in Montreal any pit bull breed not currently claimed will be euthanized. Also, any currently claimed pit bulls will be euthanized if owners do not comply with the new laws. Pit bulls will be passed on to another family member if the owner passes away.
The law divides the breed into two groups, at risk and dangerous. The at risk dogs are the ones that only exhibit aggressive behavior. However, the dangerous category is for the dogs who have killed someone or an expert has evaluated them. Unfortunately, there is no in between for the pit bull breed.
Finally, in my opinion, it is how you raise the dog. Any breed of dog can be aggressive it is up to the owner to get the right training and handling for their dog. Also, there are always two sides to every story and people should speak up for those you cannot speak for themselves. However, dogs are like people if they are raised around gangs and violence then naturally that is what they will gravitate towards.
