A breed specific ordinance proposed in Terregonne Parish, LA is on the agenda for TONIGHT’s (Monday, April 24, 2011) parish council meeting. The proposed ordinance was drafted by Parish council, and is similar to those in other Louisiana parishes. The proposal defines “dangerous and vicious animals” as (among other things):
e. Any pit bull terrier dog which, for purposes of this section, shall be defined as the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, the Bull Terrier, or any other dog of mixed breed which contains as an element of its breeding any of the aforesaid mentioned breeds of dog and, which is, due to its size, color or conformity, identifiable by a veterinarian licensed to practice veterinary medicine by the State of Louisiana as being partially of any of the aforementioned breeds of dog.
Please take a moment to send out another round of POLITE, RESPECTFUL and INFORMATIVE letters in opposition to BSL to the Parish Council, and please attend the parish council meeting this afternoon if at all possible. The Community Development and Planning Committee meeting begins at 5:45 p.m. in the Parish Council Meeting Room, 2nd Floor, Government Tower.
