VANCOUVER BC CANADA - MISS UNIVERSE CANADA - SAHAR BINIAZ - WAS ATTACKED BY A PIT BULL AT AGE 14


Sahar Biniaz celebrates as she wins the Miss Universe Canada competition in Toronto, May 19, 2012. She has added her name to the fight for a pit bull ban in B.C., and plans to make the effort a major part of her reign.

Sahar Biniaz, 26, celebrates as she wins the MISS UNIVERSE CANADA competition in Toronto on May 19, 2012 .  She has added her name to the fight for a  Pit Bull Ban  in British Columbia, and plans to make the effort a major part of her reign.

The Vancouver Beauty was a victim of a Pit Bull attack at age 14.  Her family adopted a 5-month-old Pit Bull from a breeder about a year before it attacked her.  It came from a really nice environment.

"I WAS JUST SITTING DOWN AND IT JUST KEPT STARING AT ME AND IT JUST ALL OF A SUDDEN, FOR NO REASON, JUST WENT OFF. I ENDED UP WITH 16 STITCHES AND STILL HAVE THE SCARS."

Recent vicious Pit Bull attacks on children have renewed calls for a Pit Bull ban in the province.  Biniaz thinks the province should adopt an outright Pit Bull Ban or at least bring in regulations stating that Pit Bulls must be leashed and muzzled at all times.

PORTUGAL - THE COUNTRY IS STILL WAITING FOR LEGALLY-REQUIRED DANGEROUS DOG TRAINERS - AS DOG ATTACKS CONTINUE !!!!!

 LAST MONTH ALONE 5 DANGEROUS DOG ATTACKS MADE HEADLINES.

* 2 PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN THE ATTACKS

* 3 PEOPLE, INCLUDING A 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL, WERE SERIOUSLY INJURED

While special training for dangerous and potentially-dangerous dogs was made a legal requirement in Portugal in 2009, it may prove hard to do, as the authorities responsible for certifying the trainers have yet to put the cogs into motion.

It emerged that, despite being a legal requirement, compulsory training for dogs classified as dangerous or potentially-dangerous may be hard to find as there are apparently, as yet, no registered trainers.

Proper obedience and socialization training with a registered professional is one of several obligatory conditions to owning a dangerous or potentially-dangerous dog.  Failure to do the training can entail fines.  In 2010 the government made it  the Public Safety Police  and National Republican Guard  force's responsibility to evaluate and certify trainers.  Two years later little progress appears to have been made.

In a statement sent to The Portugal News, the Ministry for Agriculture, Sea, Environment and Land Planning explained:

"The General Directorate of  food and Veterinary delegated the certification of trainers to the PSP and the NRG, who were asked to present a model of evaluation to be approved by the General Director of Veterinary Medicine. We are waiting for those police entities to publish dates and locations and proceeding to start the certification process.......AS THE TRAINING PROFESSION IS NOT REGULATED IT IS NOT KNOWN HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE EXERCISING THE ACTIVITY AT PRESENT."

*************************************************************************

 "POTENTIALLY-DANGEROUS DOGS"  are dogs of a particular build and nature that could cause injury or death to humans or animals.  There are seven listed breeds considered potentially-dangerous from the offset:

* BRAZILLIAN FILA

* DOGO ARGENTINO

* PIT BULL TERRIER

* ROTTWEILER

* AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER

* STAFFORDSHIRE BULL TERRIER

* JAPANESE TOSA INU

*************************************************************************

"DANGEROUS DOGS"  are those that have attacked a person, killed or injured an animal while out of its owner's possession, or have been declared so by the owner.

Owners of dogs of both categories must be over the age of 18 and have a special licence, renewed annually. Obtaining a licence requires that the animal has an antsi-rabies vaccine, a microchip, insurance and the owner's criminal record , among other things.  When in public the dogs must bemuzzled, kept on a lead measuring a maximum of one metre, and can only be walked by over -16s.

4 SERIOUS DOG ATTACKS IN 1 MONTH INCLUDING 2 DEATHS

WORLD WIDE PITICIDES


EUGENE OREGON- NEIGHBOR'S 2 PIT BULLS ATTACKED AND KILLED LILLIAN KNIGHT'S BELOVED CAT "SAMANTHA" - SHE WANTS JUSTICE

A couple is hoping for justice after a pair of  PIT BULLS  viciously attacked and killed their cat. Lillian Knight and her husband woke up around 4:30 am last week to loud, vicious barking.  She went out and shined her flashlight and saw the  2 Pit Bulls, a mother and her pup, underneath the camper.  She told her husband to get up and call the police.  That's when they discovered the dogs had killed their "SAMANTHA".    Lillian Knight cares for 17 cats and some stay outside and others roam around the cattery she has and inside the house.  She says that Samantha was 14 years old  and had arthritis so she could not jump up into high places. Her husband gathered the dogs up and contained them.

When the police arrived she told them she would be pressing charges.  The officer took them to a shelter  but both the Pit Bulls were returned to their owner that day.  They were told that dogs who kill cats are not to be euthanized.   These dogs had also killed another neighbor's cat.

It seems that earlier in 2012, due to budget cuts, Lane County Animal animal Services merged with Greenhill Humane Society delegating each city to care for its own animal services programs. This has caused confusion according to some residents.  There may have been some confusion in this Pit Bull attack due to lack of organization since the merger.     Officer Berry from Eugene animal Services told News Source 16 that he has.......

STARTED THE INVESTIGATION OVER TO FURTHER HELP THE KNIGHTS. HE SAID.......

"THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT EUGENE RESIDENTS FEEL SATISFIED WITH HOW THEY'RE BEING SERVED.  ANY DOG THAT KILLS ANOTHER DOMESTIC ANIMAL IS SUBJECT TO POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS DOG LEVEL FIVE.  THE LEVELS RANGE FROM 1 - 5 - WITH 5 BEING THE MOST SEVERE.  IN THE LEVEL 5 CASE, THE CANINE SUSPECT WOULD HAVE TO GET SPECIAL REGISTRATION AND WEAR A 'DANGEROUS DOG' COLLAR FOR ONE YEAR.  IN ADDITION, THE OWNER WOULD HAVE TO HAVE A SECURE ENCLOSURE FOR THE DOG - WHETHER THAT BE THE HOUSE OR A KENNEL OUTSIDE - AND ALWAYS HAVE THE DOG ON A LEASH.  ANY OF THESE VIOLATIONS COULD PUT THE DOG IN FURTHER TROUBLE AND ANY VIOLATION OF A ONE-YEAR PROBATION COULD ALSO GET THE CANINE BACK INTO IMPOUND."

LONGVIEW WA - A PIT BULL ATTACKED A 5-YEAR-OLD BOY AS HE WAS RIDING HIS BIKE ON THE SIDEWALK

UPDATE:  VIDEO - LOW-LIFE NUTTERS BLAME THE VICTIM

Thursday - August 30, 2012 - Authorities are hunting for a  PIT BULL  that attacked a 5-year-old Longview boy in the Highlands neighborhood Sunday and tore a chunk out of his leg.   The child's calf required 40 stitches and may need a skin graft and the wound now appears infected.

The boy's mother had been supervising him while he rode his bike on the sidewalk and she stepped into her house momentarily to tend to her other children when the attack occurred.  The dog had been tethered to a 15-foot rope outside a duplex.  When animal control authorities arrived Sunday evening, the 3-year-old  PIT BULL was gone.  The owner, KIMBERLY VASQUEZ, SAID HER SON HAD TAKEN OFF WITH THE DOG AND SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE HE WAS. VASQUEZ PROVIDED A PROOF OF RABIES CERTIFICATE THAT.....

                TURNED OUT TO BE A FORGERY.

The same Pit Bull reportedly also bit an adult male neighbor in April but because the bite didn't break the skin or draw blood, VASQUEZ WAS ONLY GIVEN A WARNING AND TOLD TO KEEP THE DOG TIED UP BEHIND THE DUPLEX RATHER THAN IN FRONT.  FOLLOWING SUNDAY'S ATTACK SHE WAS ISSUED A $771 TICKET FOR BITING A HUMAN, BEING AT LARGE - EVEN THOUGH THE DOG WAS TIED UP, THE ATTACK HAPPENED ON A PUBLIC SIDEWALK - AND NOT HAVING A CURRENT LICENSE.  ALSO......

BATTLE CREEK MI - ANOTHER "RESPONSIBLE PIT BULL OWNER" ARRESTED AND HIS 2 PITS WILL BE EUTHANIZED AFTER HE ORDERED THEM TO ATTACK A MAN

Johnny Henderson prepares to sign a form relinquishing his two dogs to Battle Creek Animal Control Officer Mike Ehart, left, and Police Officer Doug Bagwell.
A 19-year-old man, Zachary Baldwin,  was serving eviction papers to 27-year-old  JOHNNY HENDERSON this afternoon when the nutter commanded his 2 PIT BULLS to attack  Baldwin.  Henderson's ex-girlfriend owns the house and she asked Baldwin to help her serve eviction papers on him. Angry words were exchanged after Baldwin handed him the eviction papers and as he walked away he heard Henderson say:

              "MONSTER, GET HIM !!!"

The 3-year-old male Pit Bull Terrier then attacked Baldwin and was joined by a second dog, a 1-year-old Pit Bull named Bella. Baldwin says he was also punched by Henderson.  Baldwin was able to get back into the car and the ex-girlfriend of Henderson drove him a few streets away and called a Lifecare Ambulance.

Animal Control Officers seized the 2 dogs and took them to the Calhoun County Animal Shelter after Henderson relinquished ownership.  They will be euthanized.

PAUL STANTON, THE CITY'S DIRECTOR OF PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT SERVICES SAID EUTHANIZATION WAS THE ONLY OPTION.  "WE BASICALLY SAID, THAT DOG IS NOT GOING TO BE RELEASED.  THE CITY WAS PREPARED TO GO TO COURT IF NECESSARY TO PUT THE DOG DOWN.........AS IT DID AFTER A STAFFORDSHIRE KILLED A YORKIE-POO IN NOVEMBER 2010.....

"KILLING ANOTHER DOG IS ONE THING, ATTACKING A CHILD IS SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT."

THE INCIDENT HAS TOTALLY CHANGED ELIZABETH CRANFORD'S OPINION OF PIT BULLS.  "WHILE PEOPLE ARE OFTEN QUICK TO BLAME THE OWNER WHEN A DOG IS AGGRESSIVE.....SHE IS CONFIDENT---NOW---THAT THE BREED ITSELF IS THE PROBLEM.

"THIS WAS AN UNPROVOKED INCIDENT.  I WANT PARENTS TO BE AWARE.  I DON'T WANT THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN."

BOSTON MA - MAYOR THOMAS M. MENINO SAYS "PIT BULLS ARE AN ISSUE IN THIS CITY AND WE SHOULD HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE"

CITY COUNCILOR ROBERT CONSALVO ALSO SAYS:  "WE KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR THE CITY OF BOSTON -- NOT 200 PEOPLE IN THE LEGISLATURE.  THERE WAS NO CONSULTATION.   THEY JUST PASSED IT.....AND....

     IT'S GOING TO BE A THREAT TO PUBLIC SAFETY."

BOTH MAYOR MENINO AND COUNCILOR CONSALVO PLEDGED TO FIGHT FOR THE PIT BULL RESTRICTIONS AND SAID THE CITY MAY ASK A STATE LAWMAKER TO FILE A BILL ALLOWING BOSTON TO REINSTATE THE ORDINANCE.

Pit Bulls -- considered by many to be public enemy No. 1 in Boston's dog world -- will soon be running unmuzzled again free of restrictions, thanks to a new state law backed by  ANIMAL RIGHTS GROUPS THAT WIPES OUT A CITY CLAMPDOWN ON THE OFT-DANGEROUS CANINES.

We know what's best for the city of Boston, said City Councilor Robert Consalvo, who penned a soon-to-be-moot 2004 ordinance requiring muzzles and restricting ownership of the dogs. "There was no consultation.  They just passed it...and it's going to be a threat to public safety.  PIT BULLS ARE A PROBLEM.  THEY ATTACK HUMANS AND OTHER DOGS MORE THAN ANY OTHER BREED.  THEY'RE JUST A DANGEROUS DOG."

Consalvo pushed the pit bull ordinance after brutal attacks in 2003 and 2004.  EVEN WITH THE CRACKDOWN, PIT BULL AND PIT BULL BREED ATTACKS IN BOSTON ALMOST DOUBLED BETWEEN 2006 AND 2008, FROM 25 TO 46, ACCORDING TO STATE DATA.

"THEY'VE TAKEN A AVERY EFFECTIVE TOOL OUT OF OUR ARSENAL," CONSALVO SAID.

LOGANVILLE GA - NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULLS GET LOOSE AND A BELOVED FAMILY PET "ODIE" IS KILLED BY ONE OF THEM

Tuesday - August 21, 2012 - Last Friday a neighbor's  2 PIT BULLS escaped from their yard and one of them grabbed the Ford's beloved pet "Odie" .  The pit swung Odie around 'like a rag doll' breaking its ribs and causing deep puncture wounds.

ODIE HAD TO BE EUTHANIZED BECAUSE OF HIS INJURIES AND THE NUTTER GETS HIS PITS BACK !!!!!!!

The Pit Bull owners will receive four citations:  2 for public nuisance and two for public ordinance violation. They will have to register their dogs as "DANGEROUS ANIMALS" under the newly-passed Georgia Responsible Dog Act.  Once registered, the dogs must remain in an enclosed area or on a leash at all times.  Owners must post warning signs on their property and call animal control if the dogs bite again.

Matt Ford says the 2 PIT BULLS have escaped from their yard before and are a source of constant fear for neighbors.  He said the punishmant is nothing more than a "SLAP ON THE WRIST."

"I'VE SEEN WHAT THEY DID TO A 20-POUND DOG.  I HAVE A 30-POUND 2-YEAR-OLD.  THERE'S NO MORE DOGS AROUND; THE ONLY THING LEFT TO CHEW ON IS KIDS."

MIAMI-DADE FL - PIT BULL BAN AND COMMON SENSE PREVAIL IN SOUTH FLORIDA REFERENDUM

STEVE KURLANDER BLOGS AT KURLY'S KOMMENTARY AND WRITES A WEEKLY COLUMN FOR FORT LAUDERDALE'S SUN-SENTINEL AND IS A SOUTH FLORIDA COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGIST.

pit bull ban in miami date

In overwhelming fashion, Miami-Dade voters decided Tuesday to continue to ban pit bulls from the county.  The results show common sense still rules strong.

The campaign over pit bulls  generated as much raw passion as any race or referendum out there, yet voters reaffirmed the 23-year-old ban by a wide margin:

                         63-37 percent.

This, despite the well-publicized efforts of Marlins pitcher Mark Buehrle and his wife, Jamie, avid pit bull owners who because of the ban, say they were forced to move to Broward County when he was traded last  year to Miami.

THE BAN HAS ALWAYS MADE SENSE.  IN A CROWDED METROPOLITAN AREA LIKE MIAMI, THE KNOWN RISKS TO CITIZENS FROM THIS BREED OF DOG - AND FROM IRRESPONSIBLE OWNERS - OUTWEIGH THE RIGHTS OF RESPONSIBLE OWNERS AND THE COSTS OF ENFORCING THE BAN.

Still, the arguments against the ban were strong.  joined by many veterinarians and animal-rights advocates in South Florida, the Buehries argued that banning a specific breed was illogical and punitive to loving and responsible pit bull owners who keep their dogs under leash.

The passion shown by pit bull advocates grew crazy and irrational on Miami airwaves and in publications.  When I wrote a column in support of the ban in Florida Voices in February, I was attacked - and threatened - by some pit bull advocates who called me bigoted, cruel and every other name in the book.  It made me think twice about writing this piece.

Yet, on the other side, victims of pit bull attacks argued with just as much passion that the breed has specific tendencies toward biting people.

"I THINK THAT IF I WERE BIT BY A POODLE, I WOULDNT HAVE HAD TO HAVE EIGHT MAJOR RECONSTRUCTIVE PLASTIC SURGERIES," SAID MELISSA MORIERA, WHOSE MAULING AS A CHILD PROMPTED THE BAN AND WHO CONTINUES TO ADVOCATE FOR IT AS AN ADULT.

MANY OTHERS CONTINUE TO BE FRUSTRATED BY OWNERS WHO BREED PIT BULLS TO FIGHT OR DO NOT TAKE PROPER CARE OF THEIR DOGS.

While the ban is not perfect, arguments made by Buehrle and other advocates will continue to fall short as long as they fail to recognize that in certain urban clusters, certain dangerous animals, including pit bulls, continue to pose a significant risk to millions of people living in close proximity to one another.

JEFFERSON CITY MO - NEIGHBOR'S PIT BULL ATTACKED A PET DOG BEING WALKED BY ITS 12-YEAR-OLD OWNER - SHE WAS BITTEN ON THE HAND

Thursday - August 16, 2012 - Chloe Ramsey, 12,  was taking her dog, Calvin, for a walk Friday evening when the neighbor's PIT BULL grabbed her dog and started attacking him.  When she tried to help Calvin, she was bitten on her hand. Her parents took her to the emergency room.  She says she can not eat or write or shake hands now because of the puncture wounds, swelling and bruising.

They called Jefferson City Animal Control on the way to the hospital and met the animal control specialist at the hospital. The Ramseys were quite surprised when the specialist stated that  "HE WAS FAIRLY CONFIDENT THE PIT BULL DIDN'T HAVE RABIES."  He did not see an issue with the Pit Bull. The Pit Bull was quarantined then returned to the owners.

Chloe's mother Angela Ramsey states, "The problem is animal control is not enforcing their leash laws.  The dogs are just left outside all the time, day and night, and roam free."

The family plans to speak out about the incident at the next town meeting,  CLAIMING ANIMAL CONTROL DID NOT DO ENOUGH.  THEY  HOPE THIS INCIDENT WILL LEAD TO STRICTER ENFORCEMENT OF LEASH LAWS OR CHANGES IN LEASH LAWS.
