In April, a Hamtramck family lost its 6-year-old daughter after she was mauled to death by two pit bull terriers. In May, an Alaskan malamute and a husky fatally mauled a 2-year-old in Waterford. In December, a 91-year-old Detroit woman was killed by her bull mastiff.
With thousands of dangerous and unlicensed dogs in Detroit causing an average of 1,000 reported bites a year and a rash of recent Metro Detroit attacks, the Detroit City Council is considering joining Denver, Des Moines and the Canadian province of Ontario, among a host of other places, in banning or severely restricting ownership of a dangerous type -- the pit bull.
OK, tell me how this makes logical sense. This article says that people have been killed by pit bull terriers, a Malamute, and a bull mastiff… so they are going to ban pit bulls in Detroit to solve the problem of dangerous dogs.
No wonder Detroit is known as one of the most mismanaged and corrupt cities in the nation. They can’t even get something as simple as this right.
