Speak up for the pit bulls of Wisconsin!

Dear friends, I am counting on your support to remove the breed specific laws that are in place in the state of Wisconsin. I find it absolutely unacceptable for people not to be able to own pit bulls, gentle creatures that are highly intelligent and extremely social creatures.

The belief that pit bulls cause havoc is completely untrue and has been repealed scientifically in numerous cases. Cesar Milan, the notorious dog whisperer, has also spoken in favour of these majestic dogs. They are deeply misunderstood around the world based on people's lack of knowledge. The truth is, irresponsible owners, media, and myths have highlighted a fear around pitbulls in our communities. Are these dogs strong? Yes, absolutely! That is one of the fascinating characteristics about them. But why do we fear a muscular dog when we admire a muscular human? A well known MYTH about pitbulls is that they are naturally violent and aggressive. This of course, is extremely false. These dogs are not born violent, just like any other dog or even with people, they can become violent from lack of teaching, leadership, irresponsible ownership, abuse, and many other contributing factors.

Along with the above subject comes another MYTH, that Pitbulls have “locking jaws, ” making them even more aggressive when they “attack”. Again, this is false. They bite the same as any other dog would. In fact, there is no scientific evidence that one breed is inherently more dangerous than another. I would like point out that there is a huge error in media when it comes to focusing on dog attacks. Statistics show that in 2015, 150 dogs that were involved in attacks were claimed to be of Pitbull breed. However, 60% of those dogs were misidentified.Thus demonstrating how people assume the breed based on stigma. 

Please support my campaign to urge lawmakers in Wisconsin to reconsider the ban on pit bulls. They deserve so much better!

Due to breed specific legislation, pit bulls have been deemed against the law in Wisconsin
Will you speak up on their behalf?
