Let's hope it is a trend setter......

Excerpt "Gallatin resident Nancy Wike said she supports the idea of strengthening the county’s vicious dog laws and other animal control initiatives designed to keep Sumner County citizens safer.

Wike spoke before the Sumner County Commission’s vicious dog committee recently because she was concerned that the committee might propose adopting breed specific legislation (BSL) for pit bull terrier breeds.

So far, that has not been the case.

“I am extremely pleased with the way the committee is now proceeding,” said Wike, the owner of a American Staffordshire Terrier named Bo."

Let's hope this is the first of many cities and counties to stay clear of BSL. Education is the key to reducing dog bites, not hatred for a breed. Tougher laws should be made against dog fighting, backyard breeding, animal abuse/neglect and other issues that lend to dogs becoming aggressive and/or put in a position to bite.
