In Kitchener, Ontario this week, Shon Carroll, a humane society officer was "told" to investigate the background (lineage?) of a dog that was brought in stray.
** Kitchener has had a breed specific ban in place since Febuary 1997, put in place prior to the province enacting a province wide ban in 2005.
Jack Simpson as he put it, inherited a mutt 18 months ago from a neighbor. Simpson's dog got loose and went to explore the neighborhood, but was picked up by the humane society in Kitchener. When Simpson called looking for his dog he described him as a "lab/pit cross". The word "pit" activated the antennae of the HS to "investigate" the lineage of the dog.
This proves my point that most people who work with dogs in shelters, pounds and the like have no clue about dog genetics or breeds. They clearly have bought into the BS that "pitbulls" actually do exist and they must be identified and killed. Some shelters and pounds do not identify cross bred dogs and declare short haired mutts as breeds people "view" as "friendly" and find them homes but others such as Kitchener choose to kill dogs based on LOOKS NOT BEHAVIOR!
With each passing day this mass dog murder in Ontario gets more and more insane! Thanks Dalton McGuinty you useless piece of dog shit.
Mr. Simpson took the matter of what is now saving his dog's life to a humane society committee hearing where they would decide if the dog fit their criteria to be able to live or be designated as having some weird characteristics in how he looked that would declare a date with Dr. Death!
I have to include a lengthy excerpt because it is just too bizarre not to share.
Here is a link to the rest of the story where you may also see a picture of Jack Simpson and his dog Charlie.
Where do some shelter workers and animal control officers come up with this BS?
Someone please direct me to the information that leads these wanks to believe they can justifiably kill dogs because:
- Their head is too big
- Their forehead is too wide
-Their hindquarters are lower and smaller than their front end
-Their chest is too big
-And for God's Sake DO NOT HAVE A BOX SHAPED MUZZLE!
It appears that a flippant decision was made that Charlie seemed to also have a friendly demeanor, seeing as though he visits the OLD AGE HOME AND DAYCARE TO VISIT on a regular basis!
The moral of this story is; if you live in this Dogforsaken province of Ontariostan, erase the word "pit" from your vocabulary. Don't even use it to describe what exists in the center of most fruit for fear of having your dog killed because his head it too big!
