25 Breeds Now Being Banned in Denmark.

January 2013 – “Denmark has one of the most strict dog breed bans in the world. 12 breeds were already banned and 13 more are lined up, making a total of 25 breeds to be banned in the near future.”The discussion in Denmark went totally out of hand. While reports surfaced that despite the current ban, the number of dog bites have increased and the ban is therefore not working, politicians and media ignored the facts and called for more breeds to be banned. When vets are reluctant to euthanize healthy animals just because they are part of breed, politicians called upon people to practice “do-it-yourself” euthanasia. This message was corrected, yet it shows the sentiment that is present in the country and the horror dogs and dog owners in Denmark are living in.”

“The problem with dogs is not dogs. It is people. And laws that continue to focus on dogs and not on the owners are destined to fail because they are targeting the wrong end of the leash. This has been true throughout the world — and study after study proves it.”

    So sad to read this. I thought stupid legislation like that only happened here in America.

      I’m in Arizona and stupidity isn’t confined to locales. It manifests itself mostly with the lawyer/politician class who’d sell their kids into slavery for a vote to get another term in their “all you can steal” job.

    That same stupid legislation is here in Australia, it is easier to pass a law that appeases the ignorant masses than to make the effort to affect actual change.
