Beatrice, NE: Whispers of BSL (“pit bull” ban)

Thanks to Jodi for this alert:

Beatrice, Nebraska city councilman Jason Moore brought up the issue of banning “any dog that is part pit bull” in the city limits. His suggestion was not well received, however, Moore says he plans to draft an ordinance and present it to the council at some time in the future.

No ordinance has been formally proposed or presented at this time. We may want to send the city officials some factual information to refute the information provided by Councilman Moore, and perhaps some strong generic dangerous dog ordinances for their consideration, as well.

  1. You can not punish a dog for being born. Just like you can not punish a child. Not all pit bulls are bad dogs. Dogs just like people’s behavior is nurture vs nature! It all depends on how they are raised treated. You treat a human/dog bad then they will grow up with bad behaviors! You treat them with love, respect and good training, then they will grow up good and loving! No I do not have a pit bull, but I am prochoice and you can not punish those who do not deserve it!
