  1. That tough law will save lives
    April 22, 2012 — When it was realised that people were being killed by so-called loving dogs (pitbulls, for example) a rally should have been organised to get ownership of these loving dogs away from callous owners and to devise a way to regulate who can be classified a dangerous dog owner or handler. But dangerous dog owners/lovers did nothing. They let the mauling and killing statistics grow, leaving the Government no choice but to ban certain breeds of dog to protect the public. All opponents of the new law need to quit being naive.

  2. "But dangerous dog owners/lovers did nothing."

    Not necessarily… the Pit Peddlers and the dogfighters made alot of money!

    The have never voluntarily regulated themselves anywhere.

  3. Just to update despite attempts by the Pit Bully Community in Trinidad & Tobago to stop implementation by using a variety of tactics including threats to let loose Pit Bull amass which was threatened last time the authorities are pressing ahead and seem prepared for any attempt to sabotage.
