Wow...The Texas Legislature got Pit BS-ed again!

Considering nearly 40 percent of Pit DBRF victims are adults(a reality not seen with other breeds), this idiotic law actually excludes a good portion of mankilling Pit owners from the higher standard....It's Reverse BSL!

Meanwhile, there have been 72 Pit DBRFs in California and Texas....with zero self regulation by Pit Breeders.

PREVENT THE DEED, REGULATE THE BREED.

This is not enough. Pit bull owners know that their breed has been selectively bred for no other purpose than to kill, maim, and murder innocent individuals. Despite that, these reckless owners still proclaim that their dog is the exception to that breeding standard. This is an illogical argument.

The fact is ALL pit bulls are dangerous because they were bred to be. This is not imaginative political spin. It is fact. Pit bulls were bred to kill. The history of aggression is, in fact, the history of the breed. The one-bite free rule carves out a dangerous exception for violent beasts and their owners. What legislators need to understand is that pit bulls kill indiscriminately. There is no method to the madness - there is simply madness and more fatalities.

agreed vintage! in fact, i would argue that dogs that kill able bodied middle aged adults are far more dangerous.

the nutters are already whining about this targeting pit bulls.

Texas Legislators need to drop the illogical age exclusion provision on this Bill.

Pit Bull breeding is getting worse as the trend shows that over the past three decades they are producing a better "equal opportunity" killer:


1980-1989 12 percent of Pit DBRF victims were 18-64 years old

1990-1999 20 percent of Pit DBRFs victims were 18-64 Years old

2000-2009 23 Percent of Pit DBRF victims were 18-64 Years old

2010 to Present roughly 35 Percent of Pit DBRF victims are 18-64 years old

By comparison, of 87 documented Rottenmauler DBRFs only 4 are in the exclusion zone...less than 5 percent.

Why are owners of dogs most likely to kill in the 18-64 age groups being afforded special reduced sentencing guidelines?!? This is equivalent to passing a Law where drunk Drivers receive reduced Speeding Fines.

Even better, in lieu of the Pit Bull Breeders actually regulating themselves, how about passing a Law that actually prevents these incidents?!?

This law will not save many as so many maulings are FIRST TIME offenders. The other problem is of course.. what about the people who loose arms and legs and faces? They don't count? And what about people who fall in the middle age groups? Teens, moms and dads, people in their prime of life? It is okay for pitbulls to kill them? Idiotic law doesn't do nearly enough and actually seems to CONDONE some of the killings and maulings as acceptable!
