I received the following comment today regarding my “Ontario Bans Pit Bulls” article. This text is copied and pasted from the original comment, including all spelling and grammatical errors.
“Guest what? I’m breeding pittbulls because i have a male and a female pitt bull and they are having puppies. You can’t do nothing about it Ha Ha.”
Clearly, this person must not have read much else on this blog or they’d have no doubts that I’m AGAINST the legislation and I’m certainly not running around trying to find secret breeders.
I am against mandatory spay/neuter of all dogs. I am most definitely against mandatory spay/neuter for specific breeds. I am in favour of public education regarding unnecessary breeding, unhealthy breeding, and puppy mills. I am somewhat in favour of financial incentives to spay/neuter, but I’m still not sure about that one.
I actually end up fighting unwillingly for this owner’s right to breed dogs because of the need to fight for the right of responsible people to breed dogs.
I hope this person realizes the potential consequences of their actions if they get caught:
- Mandatory death for both parent dogs.
- Mandatory death for the puppies.
- Charges to the owners under the Dog Owners’ Liability Act with penalties of up to $10,000 in fines and up to six months in jail.
I hope it’s worth the risk to you and your dogs, buddy.
