Media Spreads Breed Specific Fears
If you can get SKY News you can support efforts to stop potential Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) in the UK!
You may have noticed the recent rush to ban Rottweilers and others supposedly “dangerous dogs” in the UK. For those of us not living in the UK, there were two recent Rottweiler attacks on children. The press is having a feeding frenzy playing off the fears of some of the public.
One magazine is trying to be a bastion of sanity — K9 Magazine. They are calling for an ownership test to have dogs. How sane is that? Here’s the link to that article. Excellent rant by the way about WHY BSL doesn’t work!
So how can you help? K-9 Magazine Editer Ryan O’Meara is going to be appearing on several TV shows over the weekend. He’ll be speaking against BSL and trying to add some sanity to calm the media chaos. If you can watch and then call in afterwards to support him and the position, you can be one voice speaking peace. He’s told me that some of the shows don’t have set times to appear but one important one does — 10:40 AM on SKY NEWS. You can tune in, root for Ryan and then text message or phone in afterwards.
