Description
Dog Breed Specific Legislation is discriminatory.
"We don’t support breed-specific legislation — research shows that bans on certain types of dogs are largely ineffective and often a waste of public resources.

In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked at twenty years of data about dog bites and human fatalities in the United States. They found that fatal attacks represent a very small proportion of dog bite injuries to people and that it’s virtually impossible to calculate bite rates for specific breeds.

The response also noted that the CDC suggests "a community-based approach" as an alternative, and more effective, method of preventing dog bites. "Ultimately, we think that’s a much more promising way to build stronger communities of pets and pet owners," said the statement.

In addition to the CDC, organizations like the American Bar Association and the American Humane Association have also come out against BSL."
