Sen. Tim Burchett advocates breed specific legislation

Thursday, November 15th, 2007

State Sen. Tim Burchett wants to enact breed specific legislation mandating that pit bulls be spayed or neutered.

Mixed breed genocide in Cali: “Unbelievable” was the reaction from PetPAC today after Members of the California State Assembly voted 41-38 to outlaw the existence of mixed-breed dogs and cats in the Golden State.

Looks like breed specific legislation doesn’t work: It was our impression that Muskegon Heights’ tough city ordinance limiting pit bulls and dangerous dogs would have been more effective.
