With a bite as nasty as its bark in this case, the Obama Administration has come out in opposition to dog breed-specific bans.
The action stems from the Administration’s long-standing practice of issuing a position statement when it receives an online petition containing a certain threshold of signatures.
In the case of seeking White House support for specific dog-breed bans, the Administration was the recipient of a petition containing some 30,000 signatures supporting such a proposal.
And this matter has taken on added interest and possible urgency, too.
News reports say that bankrupt Detroit now has some 50,000 feral and wild dogs, many of which are roaming the city in packs. It is believed that many – possibly, most – are members of the generic “pit-bull” class of canines.
