Thanks to Faith for the heads up on this!
An anti-pit bull rally is scheduled for Sept. 1, 2011 at Westlake Park in Seattle, Washington
The group Families and Dogs against Fighting Breeds is holding a “Protect Pets in Parks Rally”
The rally is specifically to show support for creating new restrictions against bringing “fighting breeds” of dogs, identified by the group as “pit bulls,” into public parks.
The director of the group says that Seattle Councilmember Tom Rasmussen has told her that he’s interested in the idea and that if she can “show public support,” then he’ll get behind her effort.
There will be a number of speakers at this event, including victims of dog attacks.
