The only thing wrong with your statement is that it will be more "cost effective" to simply ban the breed; it won't be. The cost to other breeds of dog out there, and the cost to the people who will continue to be injured by mishandled dogs of ANY breed, will persist unless the real problem is addressed.

Agreed. The key to making good policy is to first correctly identify the problem at hand and what you want to achieve. If you step back and try to figure out if the problem is to reduce the number of dog bites, or do we want to eliminate the amount of dog attracts resulting in serious injury or death? Montreal had a pit bull problem so the people chose to prohibit them.

Re: Montreal Bans All Pit Bulls

Might as well ban Rottweilers next. They maim and kill a lot of people.

Anyone who lets their dogs run free -or- their dogs break containment on a regular basis need to be harshly punished so they can prevent reoccurrence. That would be a better law than a blanket ban based upon breed.

It's only because they haven't figured out a convenient way to terrorize, overwhelm and cow their populations with pit bulls.

Yeah some Pit owners are a bunch of cunts who use them as a symbol of status.
I say put a choker chain round their necks and make them sleep in a kennel in the back yard.

The simple fact of the matter is, some people just aren't intelligent enough or responsible enough to own certain types of dog.

And yes, I've said that to the face of at least a dozen idiot clients I've had to deal with. Politely, of course, but I make it clear to them that owning a Pit Bull type, Akita, Shepherd, Maremma, Rottweiler, Doberman, Weimaraner, Shar Pei, or just about any other dog that isn't a Pug or King Charles Spaniel actually takes a bit more work than just feeding it.

One can also say that certain types of breeds attract idiots. Let me put it to this way. Why would a person choose a pit bull? What are the pros and cons? We already know the cons: pit bulls are responsible for over 50% of reported dog attacks in America annually. There's the check mark in our con category. So what are the pros?

Perhaps they make good guard dogs? Nah, sadly they don't. They don't have the guard dog instinct. They don't even make a top-18 list of best guard dog breeds. Sure, they can be used as guard dogs anyway, counting on their mere scary appearance to scare a trespasser. That's just opening up a new can of worms if the municipality in where you live have stringent castle laws.

Which bring us to the next "pro" choice. Is this a good looking , charming or a handsome dog? Well, you be the judge.

They're not particularly smart or good looking, and it possesses no special skill or ability other than fighting. Yes they make great fighting dogs. I don't have the stats but i'm guessing they rank right up there at being the best fighting breed.

If you're not into a blood sport there is only one "pro" to owning a pit bull, and now we get back to my main point. The only reason to choose a pit bull is because you believe it is some kind of fashion statement.
