it's really just odd.....few years back there was a petition going around to remove bsl...Leland Gordon didn't really say much about the breed itself just that there would be a lot that would end up in shelters if they had removed the ban..
2012 (Winnipeg) what he said about not lifting the ban....
"Gordon previously worked for animal shelters in the United States and said he consistently saw large numbers of pit bulls euthanized because it's difficult to find pet owners who want to adopt them. He said Winnipeg animal shelters already have trouble finding homes for other popular dog breeds.
"The dog still does carry that stigma, which is sad," said Gordon, who used to foster pit bulls when he lived in the U.S. "Ultimately, they would be abused, neglected; they would be hard to find homes for."
A member of the committee who helped develop the amended ordinance, Leland Gordon, executive director of Animal Friends Humane Society in Trenton, said of pit bulls, "We don't want to judge a book by its cover. If you own a pit bull, please be more responsible."
Leland Gordon, executive director of Animal Friends Humane Society in Trenton, urged the council to revisit the breed-specific restriction.
“It’s important that the city judge dogs individually rather than just based on their breed,” said Gordon, who added that most of the pit bulls brought to the shelter in Trenton are euthanized. “The government has made rash decisions — let’s kill them all.”
is this the same person?? wtf....if it is...stand up for the breed you coward...
Discuss Breed Specific Legislation and local county laws on pit bull ownership.
