Recently there was a petition spreading worldwide to stop the city of Montreal, Canada from a Pitbull ban bylaw. While the bylaw lacked quite a lot of specifics, from what I read the bylaw was to be as follows:
Montreal is banning the acquisition of "Pitbull type dogs."
Owners who currently own Pits in the city of Montreal will be allowed to keep their dogs, however there would be a lot of harsh restrictions - restrictions such as having to muzzle your dog while out in public, criminal background checks, special permits, having to walk your dog on a short leash at all times, and many more rules. And the city had warned, if the rules are broken, it could result in your dog being euthanized.
HOWEVER... with the help of animal advocates, and worldwide petitions, this past Wednesday, Quebec Superior Court judge suspended the new law pending a court ruling on a legal challenge.
Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre claims that he will not back down from the law, so that means... the fight will continue. I will keep you all updated on the bylaw as it continues to unfold.
Help us fight the fight! If you see a petition going around social media to help the Pitbull's of Montreal - please take a moment to sign it.
What are your views on this new bylaw?

Today we are co hosting 2 blog hops - The Pet Parade as well as Flashback Friday.
For the parade, we are spreading our love of Pit's.. and for FF, I have shared one of my most favorite Pit poems. I shared this a couple years ago here on the blog, so thought it would fit in nicely for a FF and today Pit post. Thanks so much for taking the time to read! xx
