Assignment Three: Government Regulation on Pit Bulls: A Crime or a Punishment?
Prepared by: Allison Rada
• Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) is one that concerns dog victims, dog owners, and communities alike. For years the media has brought attention to the violent acts of pit bulls and similar breeds. Recently, certain states have enacted BSL in order to protect their communities. However, victims of dog attacks are no longer the only victims as BSL has gone into effect. Families have lost their own dogs, members of their family, to euthanasia because they are deemed “dangerous.” State or local governments should not enact different laws regarding certain animals as the breed is not responsible for the acts but the owners and behaviors.• BSL is a statute or regulation that is directed toward one or more specific breeds that are known as “dangerous” (Weiss, 2011). The first form of regulation started in 1980 when Florida’s City Commission passed an ordinance requiring pit bull owners to complete registration forms and prove public liability insurance of $25,000 (Weiss, 2011). Four years later, a New Mexico town and Cincinnati, Ohio passed regulation regarding pit bulls (Weiss, 2011). Today over 700 U.S. cities have enacted BSL (“State-by-State,” n.d.). Pit bulls are descendants of an English bull-baiting dog, a dog bred to bite and face larger animals; once baiting large animals was banned people started dog fighting instead (“Pit Bull Cruelty,” n.d.). The pit bulls that were not used for dog fighting were the perfect family pet due to their affection and gentle demeanor with children (“Pit Bull Cruelty,” n.d.). Though dog fighting is a felony offense in all 50 states, it still has a strong subculture; owners will prepare their pit bulls for dog fighting by encouraging aggression on other dogs and animals as well as starving and beating them to encourage aggression giving them the reputation of being “inherently dangerous” (“Pit Bull Cruelty,” n.d.). Animals are a product of their environment, so being raised to behave in a certain manner is the result of the owner and behavior rather than the individual animal. Pit bulls that are not raised for dog fighting are gentle creatures and service dogs. If the pit bulls are banned then the same individuals will find another breed to train to behave in the same demeanor.• The BSL was enacted due to specific occurrences of foul pit bull behaviors.
