The KC DOG BLOG put out an interesting read on a Denver-area suburb and it's pit bull ban.

The ban was challenged, and the court proceedings began Nov. 17th, 2008. So while there seems to be a reasonable argument that the ban is not increasing public safety (IE. dog bites may have risen across the board since the ban's inception) the town of Aurora is intent on keeping their BSL intact.

The KCDB post has several links to news articles from the Denver area, one of which has an interview from the Dir. of Denver's Animal Care and Control, and a link to a 2 year report on dog bites from the Aurora township. All in all, this post in worth the time.

Edit to add:

(11/19/2008) The Denver Post reports that the Judge ruled in favor of the Aurora pit bull ban.


The HSUS attempted to fund raise for the care of Micheal Vick's dogs, while at the same time suggesting that the dogs needed to be killed.
And to add insult to injury, they weren't even planning on taking possesion of the dogs.

Contact the HSUS and tell them this is unacceptable!
