Maybe White Rock city council would consider a muzzle law for dog breeds known for these type of attacks if they are not considering an outright ban?

Does a child have to die before action is taken?

Just Google pit bull attacks to see how common this is.

I want to warn the public and the RCMP about the latest killer breed in White Rock – a cross between the most aggressive and strongest pit bull cross, with the largest and most deadly bulldog.

The drug dealers in L.A., are using this new monster dog to kill the police German shepherds.

What will it take to have pit bulls and cross breeds banned?

No matter how many are good pets – so pit bull owners say – it has been described this way by dog specialists: Having a pit bull around is like having 15 guns around your home; only one is loaded. Which one can be trusted? They are all capable of murder. It is the breed which man has developed to be vicious.

How do we, as taxpayers, demand that our politicians finally ban these dangerous weapons which are developed by gangsters and the most violent sector of our human population? Do you think they care?

I urge readers to demand that killer dogs be banned from our peaceful retirement city.

T. Mac Kay, White Rock
