Mandatory Confinement of Pit Bulls
Dallas, TX - Rodger Jones, a blogger for the Dallas News, renews his call for a state law that mandates confinement for pit bulls. He says if an owner breaks the law, the offense should be equivalent to leaving a loaded gun where a child can reach it. If the dog is loose in the back yard, the fence needs to be 8 feet high.
"These dogs are biting machines. Pits are bred to attack. How can anyone pretend otherwise and safely conclude that these dogs can suppress their basic nature? To deny this is subjecting other people to indefensible risk. That qualifies as a crime, just like endangering people by driving drunk."
