9 thoughts on “Miss Universe Canada Joins Call for Provincial Pit Bull Law in British Columbia

  1. Pit bull advocacy fails to realize that the people who speak out for regulation of dangerous dogs, the people they characterize as "haters" are just ordinary folks who probably had no thoughts on pit bulls one way or another. Until, and this is the key point, they became victims of the violence. We pretty much all say the same thing after our attack "nobody should have to go through this, somebody should do something." It comes to us that we are the "somebody" and we demand regulation. Ms. Biniaz is a high profile somebody, and she is courageous to use her status to focus attention on the maulings. Emma's parents are somebody, the Soleskys are somebody. Every parent, and every pet or livestock owner who contacts legislators to demand action, they are somebody, every one of them. Colleen Lynn is a powerful somebody, she shines a light on the need to regulate a known danger. Thank you Colleen and thank you Miss Canada!

  2. Great comment april 29 – It takes enormous courage to stand strong against the hostile, aggressive and abusive supporters of dangerous dogs. It's a sad fact that Pitbull apologists care only for themselves, and couldn't care less about Pitbll Attack victims. In my experience Pitbull Apologists are narcissists, and in psychological terms they are almost impossible to treat. Narcissists think everyone else is the problem, that there experience is the only one that counts and that they are somehow SPECIAL. Narcissists aren't very community minded as they are deeply self centred, and issues like eliminating maiming, mauling and murder by Pitbull isn't high on their selfish agenda. Unfortunately, it looks like it's up to the victims, a few strong and decent politicians and insurance companies, a strange combination, but it will have to do for now.

  3. A horrifying example of a pit bull owning family still in denial (and asking for donations!)

    "Three-year old Jayden is listed in guarded condition and will have a long road to recovery after being attacked by a family pit bull, a dog she grew up with … The dog came around the couch and came up to her like normal … and just attacked her face and would not let go … Jayden has undergone six hours of surgery to repair a fractured jaw and damage to her nasal passages, tear duct, eye lids and bridge of her nose. She also lost five teeth in the attack"

  4. The attack on the 3yearold in Rochester has rocked my brain! A pit bull moved in across the street and that's what made the 100 pound male act "different" and try to bite the girl's head off.Both parents are said to be "disabled" and the pit belonged to grandpa's roommate and she was allowed to play with it her entire 3 years. Lollipop farm behavorist is going to tell the world why this might have happened and "HOW RARE IT IS"….LORD,HAVE MERCY ON US ALL!!!!

  5. Enter now the question:

    Why can't the Pit Bull community regulate themselves and produce safe dogs in responsible number?

    What are they waiting for?

  6. "Why can't the Pit Bull community regulate themselves and produce safe dogs in responsible number?"

    Well, they are people who choose to own fighting breed dogs instead of normal dogs not bred to display unrelenting, pointless aggression. So, they're not generally going to be the most responsible group out there.

    Miss Universe is really quite brave. She's getting an unbelievable amount of flack for this.
