PIT BULL LEGISLATION
Polite Calls Needed for Maryland's Dogs
You’re probably aware that the Maryland General Assembly (MGA) has appointed a task force to study the recent Maryland Court of Appeals ruling that all pit bull-type dogs are inherently dangerous. However, this task force is divided in its views about how to best to address this situation. Since the MGA reconvenes in January, it is critical that they immediately develop a compromise position.
Please make a brief, polite phone call today to Senate President Mike Miller at 410-841-3700 and Speaker Mike Busch at 410-841-3800 and urge them to find a compromise. Then email the following message to
Sen. Miller and Del. Busch: "End BSL Now!"
Marylanders across the state are being adversely impacted by the recent Maryland Court of Appeals ruling designating all pit bull-type dogs “inherently dangerous.” In fact, the ruling is affecting owners of not only pit-bulls, but other dogs as well. The ruling has even been extended to service dogs of other breeds. For instance, a Baltimore woman is being denied subsidized housing because she has a Rottweiler service dog.
In another case, a lawsuit is being filed in federal court after Tenants at a major cooperative in Baltimore were given notice to get rid of their dogs. This case will have a massive negative impact on Maryland landlords, homeowner's associations, insurance companies, animal shelters, dog owners, vet clinics, and other small businesses.
Please send this email to the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House and tell them to work together to fix this serious problem.
