Repeal BSL Moreauville, LA

 I could write more regarding this
— but I want to get the word out to the public.

Addendum: 11-29-2014

#‎NoMoreauvilleBSL‬ ~ from the FB page of Repeal BSL in Moreauville … “Despite what some media outlets are reporting … the BSL has not been reversed, repealed or lifted. There is an emergency meeting of the town council Monday evening (Dec 1, 2014) and we will know more info after that.  But right now the ban is still in effect and any inference that it will not be enforced is through word of mouth only.  There is nothing in writing.  Please continue to share this photo because it has all of the important links to pages/ petitions/ twitter and such. SIGN THE PETITION, if you have not done so already so that we can gather those signatures before Monday’s meeting.  Thank you.”

Please note this is not restricted to Louisiana signatures —

By chance, if you have not heard of the current events regarding “Repeal BSL Moreauville, LA”  — here it is:

Moreauville, Louisiana passed a BSL ordinance mid-October 2014, and now having provided written notices to all families with Pit Bulls and Rottweilers that their dogs must be removed from Moreauville by December 1st or their dogs will be seized and “disposed” of.

Ordinance

Note: Population of Moreauville is 900. “They do not have any online presence.”

According to Wikipedia:  “The term Pit Bull is loosely used as a generic term used to describe dogs with similar physical characteristics.  There are over twenty breeds which tend to be characterized as pit bulls. These include the American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier, American Bully, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentino, Presa Canario, Cane Corso, or any mix thereof.  Any dog that is mixed with a “Bull breed” may also be called a “Pit Bull” including those that are descended from the English Bulldog, French Bulldog, and Boston Terrier.”

My personal stance:

It is the OWNERS not the Breed!

Even though I was rescued for a near- attack by a pit bull last summer, I distinctly felt then and now — it is totally the owner’s responsibility for developing loving and socialized dogs.  It is in their makeup to be loving.  You show love — you get love.  Cruelty and abuse develops the danger.  This blanketed law is INSANE.  If this type of law and seizure is allowed, it opens the door to too many other unthinkable possibilities and scenarios.

What if it is your family pet?  How would you feel?  What would you do?

  2. This is another political asinine idiotic stupid move. You get my feelings, I’m sure. I’m so angry right now reading this. Why don’t they go after the owners who abuse the animals. These are two of some of the most maligned breeds. I’d say as long as the dogs are inside pets and not allowed to roam, the owners should protect them with everything they’ve got. I just despise ignorance. I have to stop now, Becca, or I’ll get real ugly! 😡

      I TOTALLY understand — my blood has been boiling since I found out about it Saturday. Never crossed my mind to “post about it”. I feel this way no matter the breed. These are family members and in the case of Zeus, a therapy dog. They have the temperament to be great therapy dogs, and “nannies” / playmates for children. Any breed, if in the wrong hands and/or abused, can be dangerous. AND although these aren’t even my favorite breeds for me (I want a lap dog) — I have witnessed and been loved by both with plenty of kisses and tail wags. It is frightening what doors this could open!!! Anyway, please consider signing and sharing!! 😀
