  1. This is absolutely ridiculous. Some people don’t take care of their animals and they bite somebody so lets get rid of all of them? Maybe you should make a law that says if you’re going to own a dog they have to have obedience training and make the humans be responsible with their animals. God these lawsare so ridiculous.
