Breed Specific Legislation by Robert Simon
Breed Specific Legislation
Robert Simon, an American living in Holland and a Stafford owner, wrote the following letter to the Editor of the Calgary Herald (Canada) after the publication of a singularly biased article written by Naomi Lakritz:
Dear Mr. Cotton,
I recently readand was much dismayedby an article on the subject of "pitbulls" by Naomi Lakritz in the Calgary Herald . As a dog owner (originally from the US and living for some years in the Netherlands), I find very worrisome any call anywhere for Breed Specific Legislation, and as the owner of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, which is often placed under the "pitbull" rubric, these worries become quite personal.
I am as well a writer and a historian, and I find it disturbing that Ms. Lakritz apparently did little research in producing what must be characterized as an inflammatory and having been publishing art and culture criticism for nearly 15 years a good part of my own writing is necessarily the expression of a very personal point-of-view.
But I firmly believe that when someone writes something that can have real effects in the world, rouse strong sentiments, andin this caseaims to bring about legislation

Animal Welfare Committee of Members of Parliament at Westminster From: " David Levy
To: Helen Park
Subject: Parliamentary Animal Welfare Committee
Date: Wed, 1 Nov 2000 21:32:03 -0000 X-Priority: 3
Status: At the invitation of The Kennel Club I attended a meeting of the all-party Animal Welfare Committee of Members of Parliament at Westminster this evening. The RSPCA, the secretariat for the committee, had suggested the subject for the MPs to consider - "Dangerous Dogs Act in Germany" before the Summer recess and recommended that the KC be asked to provide the briefing. I assume that a formal set of minutes will be published in due course but, as usual, I thought people would want to know about the meeting. Caroline Kisco and Phil Buckley represented the Kennel Club and several other major UK animal welfare organisations such as the British Veterinary Association, RSPCA and NCDL were represented in the visitors area. Caroline made the initial introduction to the events of the past 6 months and explained why we objected to Breed specific legislation in general - including the UK's current laws! I was then asked to explain why the actions in Germany are concerning UK dog owners.

Pets Agriculture Performance Wildlife Research ... EXOTICS The NAIA Trust supports responsible pet ownership. The psychological and medical value of close contact with animals has been well established, so in an age when few people work directly with animals or have the opportunity to enjoy nature, the importance of having pets in our lives is greater than ever. Pet ownership requires effort and commitment, both to the pets and to the society into which we bring them. Responsible pet owners learn about each pet's specific behavioral needs, budget their time and resources for proper pet care and training, and make sure their pets are not neighborhood nuisances.

AVMA Honors Syndicated Columnist and Radio Host, Steve Dale, With Top Humane Award Schaumburg, IL American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) will honor Steve Dale, locally based, but nationally syndicated radio host and newspaper columnist, as the 2002 recipient of the AVMA Humane Award. The AVMA Humane Award is the only AVMA award presented to a non-veterinarian. It recognizes exceptional compassion for animal welfare and humane efforts on behalf of animals. As a syndicated columnist and radio host, Dale touches the lives of millions of pet owners every day. His bi-weekly syndicated column, “My Pet World,” is featured in more than 100 newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune, The Detroit Free Press and The Atlanta Journal and Constitution. “Pet Central,” his weekly radio show is broadcast locally in Chicago and “Animal Planet Radio” and “The Pet News” air across the country. He reaches millions of listeners. His messages are compelling as he tackles tough issues and gets results. Because of Mr. Dale, “pet dumps”-trash chute-type drop off facilities for unwanted pets-were closed in one community. When a Chicago alderman announced plans to introduce legislation with breed-specific language after two dog-bite fatalities, Mr. Dale invited her on his radio program to hear the issues and concerns of pet owners. In addition, he worked with legislators and animal experts to write non-specific breed legislation. The Chicago Animal Control Act is now a legislation model for cities around the country.

UK General Election 2001
The UK Prime Minister has called the General Election for June 7 2001. This is a great chance for dog owners to express their views and influence future government policy in the UK.
Candidates from all the political parties will be seeking your vote. They will write to you. They may hold meetings in the area where you live. They or their party representatives may even visit your home. The Council of Docked Breeds is not a party political organisation, nor does it presume to tell you who to vote for, but if the tail docking option is to continue, then we need as many MPs as possible in the House of Commons who understand the benefits of this simple animal husbandry procedure.
  • We must also make it very clear to anti-docking MPs that their position will lose them votes - particularly in marginal rural constituencies. If YOU care about the future of your breed, you must play a part.
We would ask you to bear in mind the following issues when talking or writing to those seeking your vote: European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals This international treaty calls on member states to drastically alter breed standards or to prohibit the breeding of many of our most cherished dogs. To date, the UK has not signed or ratified the Convention and has no legal requirement to do so. In 2000, some animal welfare bodies lobbied for the UK Government to sign and ratify the Convention, and the matter remains under consideration by the Home Office.

It prevents breed specific vicious dog laws from being enacted at is Ban the deed,not the breed and this the regulations to the federal animal welfare Act.
Legislative Issues Senator Alice Clausing (Senate Bill 130) and Representative David Word (Assembly Bill 232) have recently introduced legislation that will: 1. Prohibit rabies vaccine from being sold or supplied to anyone in the state BUT a licensed veterinarian. 2. Require the owner of a dog to have the dog vaccinated BY A VETERINARIAN after the dog reaches 3 months of age and before the dog reaches 5 months of age, and revaccinated within one year after the initial vaccination. The DFOW encourages all animal owners to properly vaccinate their animals against rabies. The DFOW has provided Sen. Clausing (608-266-7745) and Rep. Ward (608-266-3790) with much information and documentation to encourage them to include cats in rabies control legislation. Senator Clausing held a public hearing on the question on April 2, and was duly informed about the rabies threat that unvaccinated cat populations in other states have posed. Recent reports of rabies outbreaks include a 6 month old calf in Alabama and wild animals In Iowa. Vaccinating the feral cat population of Wisconsin is a daunting task, but certainly one that needs to be addressed if we are truly interested in having a good rabies control program in the state. Presently, Rep. Ward intends to schedule a public hearing in early May on his version of Assembly Bill 232.

    Other Organizations The East Bay SPCA is one of many animal welfare organizations serving Alameda County and the Bay Area.
    The East Bay SPCA is often confused with other organizations that also work to improve the lives of companion animals. We offer the following information about each of our roles within our cooperative, humane community: Animal Control Agencies Examples: Oakland Animal Control Section, East County Animal Shelter Municipalities work to ensure that their citizens are safe from animal attacks and diseases, by providing an Animal Control agency that provides the following:
    • Pick up and intake of stray animals
    • Confinement of animals who have bitten, to ensure that the animal could not transmit rabies to the victim
    • Enforcement of local and statewide animal ordinances
    • Animal care and control education
    • Placement of dogs and cats with families
    • Cruelty investigations
    • Custody of animals who belong to individuals in extraordinary situations.
    There are times when local governments and private organizations partner through an animal control contract. This means that the humane organization provides animal control services for a fee to that municipality.

    Dog Bite Reports
    The statistics on dog bite related fatalities vary considerably between studies. Nevertheless, there are numerous problems with most dog bite statistics. First and foremost, the vast majority of these statistics provide raw numbers, and are not normalized to reflect the prevalence of any given breed in the overall population of dogs. Without this information, it is impossible to determine the comparative risk of one breed over another from dog bite.

    THE KENNEL CLUB'S VISIT TO THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION - JUNE 2001 Reproduced from the Kennel Club Press Release * The primary European Commissioner, in charge of EU policy
    It was clear from the meeting that UK dog lovers deserve congratulations for keeping the issue on the political agenda. Parliaments both here and abroad are aware of the situation and also aware of the strength of feeling. The EU will continue to ask the German Chancellor for the rationale behind the decision to outlaw breeds like the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Bull Terrier, when there is clear evidence that they cannot be held responsible for incidents in Germany. WHAT YOU CAN DO!
    Please consider writing to your MP, MEP, Mr Blair and the German Government and German Embassy (even if you have already done so), to keep this issue firmly in the public spotlight and on the political agenda. Writing again is important as the situation has changed since April 2001 when these laws came into force in Germany and not everyone will be fully aware of the changes. Contact YOUR MP and MEP and let them know what YOU think now.

    58. Think Globally, Act Locally
    Know the Federal animal welfare Act. Pretend interest in purchasing a specific animalin order to get the information Report mills to the appropriate breed club
    Tips and Techniques Pet stores that sell puppies and/or kittens get their stock from one of two places: animal shelters or mills . Reputable breeders do not sell litters through pet stores. In fact, breed clubs specifically prohibit their members from doing so. A reputable breeder will want to make personal contact with you, and will want assurance that the environment you have to offer one of her animals is appropriate. If the pet store's stock comes from an animal shelter, it will be identified as such, and an adoption fee, rather than a sales price, will be charged. The pet store makes no profits on shelter adoptions. Shelter adoptions cost under $50 and no claims are made regarding the animals' pedigrees or registration (with AKC, in the case of dogs or CFA, in the case of cats). If the pet store's stock comes from a mill , it will be identifed as a specific breed, such as Siamese or Abyssinian cat, or Cocker Spaniel or Miniature Pinscher dog. Claims are often made as to the pedigrees (e.g. Conformation or Obedience Champions) and registration. Guarantees are sometimes given, although not specific health registry numbers, like CERF or OFA. Sales prices can exceed a thousand dollars, far more than the cost of purchasing a high quality animal from a reputable breeder. Mills, or large-scale breeders of pet animals, are required to be licensed (as Class A Dealers) and inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Many avoid inspection by failing to register. Pet stores must provide you with the mill's

    Protesting at Downing Street with MEPs and concerned dog-owners and their pets Since becoming an MEP, I have become increasingly concerned about the issue of animal welfare. I have been working with Compassion in World Farming on a range of animal welfare issues. I also work with the Eurogroup for Animal Welfare , which runs a cross party group of MEPs from different European countries. I write regularly to the European Commission and the UK government demanding better and tougher legislation on animal welfare. I use the responses to my letters and parliamentary questions to keep my constituents and animal welfare groups up to date on current EU legislation. This page sets out just a few examples of many areas where I believe animal welfare standards could and should be improved. I will continue to press for and give my support to an increased level of animal welfare in these and other areas. Dogs at Risk in Europe The EU has recently been considering whether to introduce a new European law on dangerous dogs, following German, Spanish and French proposals on the same subject. Recently adopted German legislation targets individual breeds of dog, subjecting them to draconian and arbitrary temperament tests and sky high license fees. Penalties for non-compliance include death for the dog in question. The legislation is based solely on the ancestry of the dog without consideration for their individual temperaments. Many breeds are covered by the new German laws, including the Bullmastiff, Bull Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. These breeds are well established in the UK. They have excellent safety records and make ideal family pets. The German legislation is a severe overreaction.
