Not effective

On Ontario’s pit bull ban.

“As veterinarians, we would like to see legislation getting to the root of the problem,” said Dr. Warren Skippon, the group’s manager of national issues and animal welfare. “Slicing off one breed and banning that breed is not effective legislation.”

He said it was difficult for veterinarians to identify pit bulls due to the cross-mixing of several breeds, and instead the association would like to see new legislation requiring owners to register aggressive dogs.

“It really comes down to responsible pet ownership,” said Skippon. “People choosing dogs that are well matched to their lifestyle and choosing dogs selected for temperament, not for their looks.”
