I agree and feel that humane euthanasia is a much better practice than putting them in homes. Dogs that were brought up fighting will never change. They will literally try to kill a dog at the drop of a hat without any signs of provocation. I know because I adopted one 7 years ago and dont suggest it for anyone. He is very sweet with me but anything can trigger him. I have no males left alive in the home so all is good. But no kids, friends or male dogs allowed. I really thought I could help him, which I have but I cant get him past the past. Its really tough.
If you want to get your toddler a pet, let me suggest an 8 week fixed male, lab/boxer or retriever mix.
You know BSL is within the rights of a community. However, the dogs already in the county should be grand-fathered in and only pertain to new dogs.
I am as big a dog lover and activist as they come.
How would you like it if someone said, hey you can no longer voice opinions against your government as it is no longer supported by the 1st amendment? When you push anti-BSL you are paving the way to destruction of our 1st amendment, unalienable rights as citizens of the USA to organize, protest and or change the law.
I will never vote for BSL, but I cannot with a clear conscious promote it either.
Four defendants in Missouri have pleaded guilty to federal dog fighting charges stemming from the largest dog fighting raid in U.S. history, which happened July 8.
Four eastern Missouri men — Robert Hackman of Foley, Teddy Kiriakidis of Leasburg, Ronald Creach of Leslie and Michael Morgan of Hannibal — pleaded guilty this week in U.S. District Court in St. Louis to charges connected to the raid. Another man arrested in connection with the raid — Jack Ruppel of Eldon — pleaded guilty to charges Sept. 4 in federal court in Jefferson City.
The ASPCA assisted the Humane Society of Missouri and federal and state agencies in conducting the raid, which resulted in the rescue of more than 400 dogs and the arrests of 26 people accused of organizing dog fighting rings. Arrests were made in eight states, including Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska, and Mississippi.
Dogs rescued exhibited numerous wounds and scars; one was missing lips; another was missing a leg. Many had internal parasites, ear infections and broken, worn or missing teeth.
“The ASPCA is determined to protect its nation’s pets from dogfighting and other forms of brutality” said ASPCA President and CEO Ed Sayres. “Animal cruelty cannot be tolerated, and we are pleased that the five Eastern Missouri defendants are taking responsibility for the pain and suffering that they inflicted.”
