The other San Fran Ban

A ban on politically incorrect dogs:

City supervisors passed a new set of laws requiring spaying and neutering of pit bulls five months after the fatal mauling of a 12-year-old boy by his family’s pit bulls.

Tuesday’s decision came in the face of a threat of a ballot initiative to overturn a tough new state dog law. It is the latest move in the contentious debate about how to regulate pit bulls after the death of Nicholas Faibish in June.

“This will serve as a model for other cities in how to responsibly craft laws and policies that deal with dog aggression,” said Supervisor Bevan Dufty, who wrote the ordinances. “We needed to do something.”

Yes, we must do something even if it won’t work or make a bit of difference. Breed specific legislation doesn’t work. People will just find another breed.

Dufty said that over the next two to three years, the rules will reduce the number of pit bulls in the hands of irresponsible owners.

They’ll just switch breeds.

The ordinances also require city permits to breed pit bulls and prohibit owners of pit bulls or pit bull mixes from retrieving impounded dogs unless the animals are sterilized.

Owners who refuse to spaying or neutering would face fines of up to $1,000. Breeders of show dogs recognized by a kennel club would be exempt. The ordinances are scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1.

There are quite a few unethical show dog breeders, puppy mills come to mind.
