Pitt Bull, Rottweiler Ban in Louisiana

A family in Moreauville is pleading with their village to overturn an ordinance that would force them to get rid of their beloved family pet.

On October 13, the village passed an ordinance that states if you own a pit bull or a Rottweiler, you must get rid of it by December 1 or they will take it for "disposition."

Quote:
News Channel 5's Brooke Buford (Twitter: brookebuford) has the story.

O'Hara Owens is trying to spend as much time as she can with her beloved pit bull, Zeus, before the village she lives in promises to take him away from her and dispose of him on December 1.

"If anything ever happened to him, I would just shut down," she said.

O'Hara suffers from severe neck problems and has been forced to wear a halo brace and use a wheelchair.

She says Zeus acts as a sort of "therapy dog," providing love and support for her and her other brothers and sisters.

"I can sit here if I'm in pain, he comes and he notices it before I even make any noise," she said.

But, Zeus has been blacklisted as a "vicious" breed in Moreauville.

On October 13, the village voted to ban pit bulls and Rottweilers.

A letter was sent out to owners saying that if they didn't get rid of them by December 1, then they would be taken for "further disposition."

"The breed is not vicious," she said. "It's the owner. It is the way that you raise them."

O'Hara's parents tried to fight the passing of the ordinance at the meeting, but were outnumbered.

They say no one has ever complained about their dog and it has never bitten anyone.

"I asked the question, well what if I don't give you my dog?" said Joanna Armand, O'Hara's mother. "(Chief of Police) Scott Lemoine said they would come and get the dog and the dog would be disposed of and we would be fined."

News Channel 5 reached out to village to hear its side of the story.

Alderman Penn Lemoine said the ordinance was created to appease several residents.

"We had several residents that were complaining about not being able to walk along the neighborhoods because these dogs were basically running along town," Lemoine said in a phone interview.

We asked Lemoine about dog attacks...

"There have been, but I don't think they're documented," he said.

And, if they plan to kill the dogs they collect on December 1...

"I'd rather not elaborate on that," he said.

"Is that what it is? Are you going to kill the dogs?" asked reporter, Brooke Buford.

"If that's what the ordinance says, then that's what it says," Lemoine responded.

Lemoine told us he owns a German Shepard. But, he only considers pit bulls and Rottweilers as "vicious."

He also says what the town is doing is completely legal.

O'Hara Owens and her family say they plan to continue to fight for Zeus.

"Like I told them, they're going to have to take him from my cold, dead hands before they get a hold of him," Owens said.

Alderman Lemoine says if there's a strong enough public outcry about the severity of the ordinance he says he would consider possibly changing it.

The next council meeting is December 8.

Re: Pitt Bull, Rottweiler Ban in Louisiana

How many children will have to be maimed before the rest of the U.S. bans pit bulls?

Re: Pitt Bull, Rottweiler Ban in Louisiana

Pointless, all the idiots that want a big aggressive dog will just go buy a mastiff or a pressa. Not everybody that has a pit is an idiot, far from it, but there is a certain segment of the population that owns one to intimidate people.

IMHO the problem is the owners that don't know how to handle a dog like that.

Try not to cop bash so much and stay on topic.

Ontario's pit bull ban has been 100 percent effective. Dog bites in general have be on a decline ever since the ban was passed in 2005. From 1982 to 2013, pit bulls or close mixes were responsible for 1,777 maimings, for 64 per cent of all such injuries in Canada and the United States. Fifty-one per cent of dog-related deaths (275) have been attributed to the breed, as have 67 per cent of attacks doing bodily harm (2,990).

Don't get me wrong, Pits should NOT be banned just because of my personal experience. It's because hundreds of people have been killed by a breed that is responsible for a majority of attacks, despite making up a minority of the dog population.

Re: Pitt Bull, Rottweiler Ban in Louisiana

The accuracy of dog bite statistics is quite shakey.

If the person doing the reporting labels the dog wrong, it's innacurate.

If the attack/bite isn't anything close to a pit bull, it may not get reported on, because it doesn't have enough buzz to warrant a story - which is innacurate to statistics.

It's funny that people on here notice that black on white crime is ignored in the press, but don't see that it can and does happen with other things, such as dog bites and attacks done by non-buzz worthy dog breeds.

Lots of mixes look like they could be pit bulls and aren't.

I've heard other Canadians saying that dog bites haven't gotten better, only different dogs doing the biting.
I guess it just depends on who's statistics you're looking at.

Re: Pitt Bull, Rottweiler Ban in Louisiana

On another note:

Isn't Louisiana where Tia(Pit Bulls &Parolees) moved all her dogs/shelter/sanctuary because of the hassle with California permits?

I could swear she moved to New Orleans or something.

Edit: so it's just a village in Louisiana, not a statewide problem. I missed that part.
