Just in the past summer in Washington State, a Kent man was mauled by two pit bulls while walking in his neighborhood and a Seattle man had his lip disfigured by an on-leash pit bull in a public park. Because of these and other incidents, a group called People and Dogs Against Fighting Breeds is asking Seattle officials to ban pit bulls from public parks.

 

The group is planning to hold a "Protect Pets in Parks" rally against pit bulls in Westlake Park. This rally will feature those who have been injured in pit bull attacks, as well as other supporters of breed-specific laws.

 

The founder and leader of the group, Ellen Taft, believes that pit bulls and other fighting breeds are dangerous to both other dogs and humans. While she wishes that the entire breed could be eliminated, she has settled on pushing for more regulations regarding the dogs within city limits. In 2006, the group failed to get the breed outlawed altogether in Seattle.

 

Last week, the BullsEye Dog Rescue threw a pit bull parade in Issaquah, Washington that promoted the breed, encouraged adoptions, and spread awareness.
