Is it fair to ban certain breeds of dogs that the local governments deem as too dangerous to own?


All of us have heard of certain dogs breeds that have a reputation for attacking people. Certain breeds of dogs have been outlawed in some communities due to some dangerous behaviors. This practice has been criticized by the Humane Society and the ASPCA as unfair and inaccurate. Do you have these laws in your town and do you think its fair?

    I like the idea of training for certain dogs and their owners.That may cut down on the perceived danger of some breeds.

    No it is not fair to treat the dog for what the owner is doing or not doing; such as properly supervise and train the animal.

    I agree that some dogs have not been properly trained and have turned them into vicious pests.

    I think people are responsible for their dogs behavior.

    The animals are subject to their environment.
