Montreal, CA – The city council of Montreal recently voted to ban ownership of pit bulls, causing outrage from dog lovers everywhere.

The measure was voted by a 37-23 majority, in response to controversy caused by a random dog attack, which was an isolated incident.

Mayor Denis Coderre issued a statement after the vote saying, “My duty as mayor of Montreal is making sure I am working for all Montrealers. And I am there to make sure they feel safe and that they are safe.”

Advertisment

The new law will go into effect starting on October 3rd, and will effectively ban new ownership of any pit bull or “pit bull type dogs.”

The law says that the following breeds will be marked as “pit bull type dogs.”

-Staffordshire bull terriers.
-American pit bull terriers.
-American Staffordshire terriers.
-Any mix with these breeds.
-Any dog that presents characteristics of one of those breeds.

There is a court appeal planned by those who are objecting to the new measure.

The Montreal SPCA is among the groups pushing a court challenge of the law, saying that this could lead to the deaths of countless innocent animals.

“If the city of Montreal truly wanted to ensure public safety, it would not have forced a rushed adoption of controversial legislation which is unfair, unenforceable, and, most importantly, ineffective,” the agency said in a statement.

According to the CBC, those who now own a dog of those breeds in Montreal will have to acquire a special permit in order to keep their pet by Dec. 31, 2016. Those who fail to acquire a permit will have their dog taken and killed after the law goes into effect.

The fine print of the law even says that a pit bull must be automatically euthanized when their owner dies.

While there has traditionally been heavy debate over larger breeds of dogs, in recent years, the debate has died down. An overwhelming majority of people now agree that like humans, a dog’s temperament and personality are largely based on their upbringing and life experiences.

In fact, a recent study conducted at the University of Bristol’s School of Veterinary Sciences showed that a dog’s upbringing, not its breed, is responsible for aggression.

The study was published in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science in 2014, and was called Human directed aggression in domestic dogs (Canis familiaris): Occurrence in different contexts and risk factors.”

The study surveyed 14,000 dog owners in the U.K and found that the dog’s environment was entirely responsible for its aggressive tenancies.

        GFY pittie, retard.

        • Greg Geitner

          your stupid is showing.

          • Hal321123

            That’s all you got to say, Pitt-daddy?

          • Greg Geitner

            that is all that is needed.

          • Hal321123

            Wrong. Much more is needed.

            Someone, like you, perhaps, put their infant baby and their entire family’s well-being at risk, and then lost that needless gamble.

            Worse than a tragedy because it was no accident. It was totally preventable and was poor judgement.
            That family will never forgive themselves.

            Real men don’t put their kids at risk, for amy reason. Same as why you, hopefully, don’t drive recklessly with or without your family. Real adults take care to eliminate
            all unncessary risks to protect what is most valuable to them.

            I’m sure that family thought it could never happen, either.
            But it could and it did.

            Might try harder to come out of denial, and learn from it.

            Meanwhile, I will eliminate any such risk that comes into my neighborhood, which could attack my family members or friends..and feel totally justified in doing so.

          • Greg Geitner

            i never said anything about telling ANYONE how to act or what to do. i told my story. my initial statement has not changed. kill my dogs, i kill you.

          • Hal321123

            Put your kids and yourself at risk, moron. Likely no great loss.

            Please spare the neighbors, though.

            Just another day in your life in Loserville, I’d guess.
            Where I live, we’re not about projecting punkass machismo through our pets.

          • Greg Geitner

            you talk a lot of shit hiding behind your keyboard.

          • Hal321123

            Pretty ironic, coming from Mr. Macho Wannabe, hiding behind his gangbanger pittie.

          • Greg Geitner

            now you have stooped to name calling. you ran outta road. weak retort. hope thats not your best.

          • Hal321123

            You might have to look up the word, “i-r-o-n-i-c”, to comprehend just how apt my retort was, given your lunkheaded posture here.

    Go read here about the pitbull killing his family’s 6 month old baby girl in Vegas this week,,,,http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/05/11/pit-bull-mauls-6-month-old-baby-to-death-in-nevada.html

    He was so lovable, so gentle, so trustworthy, for 9 years…until he mauled her to death.
    The family is shocked, shocked! Who could have guessed?!!
    “Proper socialization” was obviously no prevention.

    Might as well leave a loaded gun around the house.

    Ban these devil dogs. If one comes into my neighborhood, I am ready.
    (One paralyzed my son’s little puppy a few years back, unprovoked, broke its leash, who could have known…etc., etc., excuse, excuse…

    Fuck these monster dogs and their imbecile sociopathic owners. period.
    Bakers chocolate is the cure for this stupidity.

  • Hal321123

    How many humans do you hear that attack infants in your own home and maul them in a horrid and painful death?

    You would jail or eliminate anyone who had this history. Pitbulls are not humans and are totally optional and have no rights. A bad choice to allow to live among us. Period.

  • Hal321123

    Did this family make them aggressive? It’s an Inherent trait.

  • Hal321123

    German shephards might bite, they don’t kill.
    Pitbulls have a rep for a reason and only fools or sociopaths would argue otherwise.

  • Hal321123

    Was that the problem for this particular dog?
    Not according to the story and unlikely given the trust they
    Put in the dog.

    So your point is wrong.

    “Pick a breed”? Really now. Let’s just start with the largest percentage of dog/human deaths, and concentrate on that breed and get to the others later. So, which breed is the one killing the most people, children and pets?
