In the beginning of August, a four year old girl was attacked by a pit bull at a barbecue in White Rock B.C and then a four year old boy was attacked by a pit bull in Kelowna. The parents of both children are calling for a province wide breed ban. While in Ontario, there is a pressure from the pit bull community to lift the ban on pit bulls because of the unclear description in the legislation. It forbids pit bulls and other dogs with broad shoulders, short hair and a wide forehead. A lot of dogs can apply to this because “pit bull” isn’t a recognized breed, but American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers or any of them mixed, are. 

I live in B.C, and when I read that a ban could be placed on this breed, I really couldn’t believe it because for so long there has been no breed ban and I kept hoping one would never be placed. The parents of the children are responding out of fear and anger, the only way of preventing these issues is to compel animal cruelty laws and make owners responsible for their pets. A breed ban is just a false idea of safety in a community. Ignorance is a very poor excuse to ban a certain breed.
