I was just wondering if anyone believes that pit bulls should be legal in Junction city, and why. I know the group Friends of Animals is trying to make them legal, and it is going to be presented to the city commision soon.

IMHO, they should not and since there no longer seems to be an ACO in J.C. from what I have heard, they really should not be allowed.

They have had for the most part a bad reputation and unfortunately they live up to it. Whenever you hear of dog attacks, it's usually by a pit bull. It's in their nature.

NO NO NO!!! If you have ever lost a child because they were attacked by a pit bull or any other dog for that matter you would not be trying to make it legal in any city!!!!

that is what I thought, and was wondering if anyone felt the same...please watch the agenda and make sure you attend the city commision meetings to voice our opinions, because i do not want pit bulls in this community either

I tend to disagree with what you have stated. Like all dogs, it is how they are raised. I knew someone who had a weenie dog that was one of the most fearfull dogs I ever came across. It was taught to bite on command. yes pitbulls have a bad reputation along with dobermans, rotweilers, chows and many other dogs. Most people are bit by the smaller breed of dogs. Dogs are very much like the owners, if the owner is mean and nasty, the dogs will be the same.

no I have not lost a child from any dog attack. in this area one lost a child from a rotweiler attack. that owner is in prison now. Once again it is how the owner raises the dog.

We no longer live in Geary County, but we have the most loving friendly pitbull that would not hurt anyone. Last spring he found a baby bunny and brought it to me very carefully and the bunny was not hurt. People are the culprits of bad dogs. People should watch and take care of any animal that they have. I don't think pitbulls should be legal as they are subjected to bad enviorments of bad people. Maybe liscensing is the answer. Close screening of the people who would love their dog and not abuse it.

Well, since we can't trust that everyone with a pitbull is as loving and caring of them as you are, I will maintain a firm grip on my .38.

Someone moves into MY neighborhood with a pit or rot or any aggressive dog, I will be more than happy to express MY position as leader of the pack.

Once the aggressive animal is dead, I will deal with the issue in court.

Better than letting an unarmed child get attacked.

And you have every right to protect yourself and your neighborhood. Before we got our dog I was as equally afraid of pitbulls. I would never trust a strange dog of any breed. I have been bit twice as a kid by little roaming dogs and it hurts and it is very scary.

Anyone that knows the history of Junction City/Milford and Pitbulls would probably hesitate to want the dogs to be legalized. A poor little boy lost his life to a gang of the beasts, while waiting to get on the school bus out near Milford, hence the new law. Christopher won't be forgotten. If you can't trust some of the owners to raise the amimals right, we need to keep the law. My opinion.

Monty you are well informed enough to remember a story that affected this community several years ago. However in your attempt to make an articulate point based on facts instead of simply opinion and emotion you made a mistake in the presentation of your information. this not only means you do not have a photographic memory, you are human, you do make mistakes and apparently now it also makes you a dumbass. (they were rotweilers)

The rotties were also "trained protection dogs".

Here is a question for you Damn what is an aggressive dog? Does a Pit Bull, Rottweiler, German Shepard, or Akita breeds make it aggressive? Or do base your decision on the the actions of the individual dog?
