Many of the comments on the original post are in error. For instance Labradors hold the record on dog bites but that is only because there are more of them than any other breed because over all the make good pets. But the issue here is a man's life and health worth more than an animal. The answer according to the animal rights groups is not. An ant is a rat and a rat is a pig and a pig is a boy. This means that all of the laws animal rights are pushing is to move animals to the same legal level as our children. So when you have to kill a dog because it is attacking your child know that there are people out there who will accuse you of murder because you chose to kill the dog to save your child. This is the topsy turvey world of the animal rights agenda to prevent you from owning any type of pet. The laws pushing animal abuse registries, guardianship laws, and giving pigs constitutional rights are all intended not to just elevate the care of animals, but to end the concept of humans needing to care for these animals. When the world becomes so rigid as to count how many minutes you exercise your pet each day or to count the number of fish in your fish tank so that your fish are not socially deprived we have taken this too far. This moves people away from pet ownership which is the intention of these groups to end all use of all animals for any purpose whatsoever. So when you vote for these laws know that you condemn all domesticated animals to extinction because these animals cannot care for themselves without humans. Animal rights people do not truly like animals because their 12 steps agenda clearly state for step 10 the end to all pet ownership, the end to medical research, the end to all meat eating. Unfortuanately the animals have no understanding of rights and will continue to interfere with your right to exists and so called rights of other animals to exist. This is a dead end philosophy which is being pushed on this world by people who are so damaged from not eating properly that they can no longer think properly. It won't make the world a safer place for animals or for humans. It will only make it more ligtigeous and more money for the lawyers. As for the animal rights people what will be their next cause once they have eliminated our animals. The only thing left are our children. Did you know that the most political animal rights zealots have themselves neutered so as not to produce any children. When they are done with themselves do you thing they will stop with your children? No. They are in our public schools already telling our children that is wrong to own a pet, it is wrong to marry and have children. Ask your children what they learn about animal rights in school today and you will be surprised.

I have recently been charged by a dog running loose, and had to use pepper spray. Either it had no effect, or I wasn't close enough. But the dog tried to cut me off, and I had to spray a second time. I made an unplanned stop at the police dept. to place a report.
