Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Little Rock starts enforcing "pit bull" laws:


KC KS Kills Dogs

Here you have it the position of H$u$, a quote in the local Little Rock media report.

"The Humane Society of the United States is backing Little Rock's ordinance. Animal services say owners have to register or they will lose their dogs."

I noticed H$U$ staff was right in the trenches with Little Rock AC stealing dogs out of people's back yards. The media didn't seem to think anything was wrong with confiscating people's property right out of their yard. The law of the arm can't just steal your car out of your driveway for failing to register it - they don't go door to door looking for unregistered vehicles. This is outrageous!!!!

By the way did you notice the dog owners race? When oh when are people of color going to get on the bandwagon and realize these laws are targeting them.

Finally the irony of the media - after this story they went onto a story about Flag Day and patriotism in the good 'ol USA.


Back from my comment vaction. Well, I just have to pretty much agree with everything that KCK said.
And how about KCK enforcing more laws that have been on the books for years(without telling anyone) and not expecting people to be angry but ultimately doing nothing about them.
This site isn't just about dog welfare issues to me, its more of a socail rights watch blog at times. Bret I think you make better and much more ture and sane statements than anything I hear from Alex Jones at times.


So much for the previous statements by the H$U$, eh?

The morons are in charge, no doubt about it but the morons who put them there are really to blame.

Why aren't people freaking out generally over this? Releasing lost dogs into the woods? Going door to door and stealing people's dogs?

Does anybody know how the lawsuit in AK is going?


"Some pit bulls can be dangerous, but when they're chained, some can become more ferocious.

"I would be mad too if I was him," says Desiree Bender, Arkansas Director of the Humane Society of the United States."

Desiree, if I'm not mistaken, used to be head of a pit bull rescue group and was involved in that fixing that Katrina screwup with one of the national groups dumping a bunch of pit bulls with some horrible hoarder.. in fact I think it was she who first discovered the disaster. Worms turn, I guess. Though if she is there to participate in the seizing of abused animals, that's one thing... But participating in enforcing an abusive law is another. Of course HSUS loves to use the cover of "abused" animals to apply their fascistic methods.


oh and by the way: that animal shelter guy who's so happy that he's confiscating these happy wagging dogs so he can "give them a good meal"?

Who wants to bet he'll be KILLING those "unadoptable" dangerous animals within the week.

But hey, at least they won't be on chains...


Emily, I had the same thought for the "give them a good meal" comment. Kind of like their Last Supper. They give those going to the electric chair a good meal too before they go off to die.

Caveat, I haven't heard anything in awhile about the Arkansas lawsuit...I'll see what I can dig up for you.

I think you can all calm down about this issue, now. My dog and I were attacked by a pit bull in my neighborhood a few days ago, and it is a miracle that my dog survived. He was seriously injured, and I was also bitten.

The police do not respond to these attacks and it is up to Animal Control (which has all of four employees) to respond. This pit bull has already killed another neighbor's dog, and yet was returned to its owner. So while you are all thinking about this issue, please stop and consider that other people and their dogs have rights, too.

You are absolutely correct Mary and this individual dog and its owners should have been dealt with at the first sign of trouble, no matter what the breed of dog. I hope your dog is on the road to recovery and I hope you can get justice from the idiots that allowed this to happen to you and your dog



Your situation highlights one of the major reasons why everyone should be upset about ridiculous laws like this. Instead of AC wasting their time and resources (which are always too few) on dealing with dogs simply because they are unaltered, they should focus 100% of the resources on dogs (and owners) that have identified themselves (based on their behavior) as problems. It is the most efficient and effective way to improve public safety.

I hope your dog is heals nicely

I love pitbull's they are cool they are playful and the only reason they can be mean is because of the owned the dog is only as good as its owned thats I beleve and the reason they make the owners of the dog pay a fee is because these dogs are being agresive because the are eather 1.not a good pet owner 2.a person that misstreats a dog or 3.They are never around to teach the dog wrong from right. The bread is the most missunderstud bread I think everybody should have the right to have a dog no matter the brad wether it is a pit,german sheperd,or even a chawawa. I will also say agen "THE DOG IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE OWNER". SORRY FOR THE SPELLING ISSUES PEOPLE.
