Ban stupid people (and reporters) - not dogs!
Original post made by Samantha, Palo Alto Hills, on Sep 11, 2007
The Fremont "pit bull" is an American Bulldog, just like the Iowa attack at the Labor Day parade (also reported as a pit bull the first day) is an American Bulldog.
Troubled dogs come in all shapes, sizes and breeds - and all of them were showing warning signs before an attack. The dog in Fremont had a history of issues and is the exact same kind of dog in all dog attacks - a poorly managed and owned dog with a crappy temperament.
If Diana Diamond and others are truly concerned about protecting the citizens of Palo Alto, the solutions are really simple:
1) Enforce the leash law
2) Enforce non-breed-specific Dangerous Dog legislation
3) Proactive spay/neuter programs, especially in low-income areas
Then again, the Diana Diamonds of the world aren't interested in real solutions, because solutions aren't newsworthy.
It's a shame.
