If Gwinnett County officials want to restrict pit bull ownership, they'll do it without the support of their own citizens' advisory panel.

But Jennifer Wagner of Snellville, who owns two pit bulls, said she would have to go to great expense to keep her animals. She called the ordinance unfair.

"I am trying to teach my daughter not to judge people by the way they look, but by their behavior. Now the county wants to teach her that her beloved dogs are too dangerous to own, not due to anything they have done, but purely because of the way they look," she said.

Hey Ms. Wagner, a big dog'll kill and eat a smaller dog and not because of some form of discrimination. They also sniff each others butts and roll around in each others poo. Why? They're dogs, not people. Nor is a fish a person nor a deer or a rabbit. Stop believing the Disney version of animals that they all live in a harmonious world (with the exception of the evil Mr. Wolf who should be hunted down and killed). That's all BS.

Pluto is a dog and Goofy appears to be one.
Pluto acts like a dog, but Goofy acts like a human.
What gives, Disney?

Just once I'd like to see in the middle of a Disney cartoon Pluto start humping a wet umprella or scooting along on his rump cause of worms......that's how real dogs act.
a bit silly

It's the City of Douglasville not Douglas County. And comparing this to Disney is just a bit silly. I do not agree with a pit bull ban, I would however be in favor of a dangerous dog ordinance. Assuming it would actually be enforced. But this only applies to City of Douglasville residents, not County residents.

I just wonder what this women would think if the beloved dogs attacked her child. Would she side with the dogs and say her child deserved it?

Ever see the post attack interview after the (lion, tiger, bear, whale, pack of wild dogs, etc) eats the trainer? "We were all surprised, it never did that before". Really? I'm thinking that if it had done that before, we wouldn't now be standing here watching it digest this trainer who thought "It won't eat me".

I've always loved wild animals and like to get a little too close. It's just human nature. But, I expect one day I'll be bitten or worse. I feel like I have a connection with some animals. Thankfully, I know that's all in my head and am realistic with the knowledge that no matter how sweet and cuddly, they'll each you for breakfast.

I do not understand why the people of Gwinnett co. were even against that ordinance? It is nothing like what Douglasville was proposing, which would have banned all future Pit Bulls here. The Gwinnett co. ordinance would have required those who own certain breeds to show proof of liability ins., have them in a fence at all times and keep a muzzle on them when they have them out in public. If I owned one of those breeds, I would have zero issues with the above proposed things.
