Brisbane BSL slammed

THE GRIM spectre of Breed Specific Legislation is being given serious consideration by politicians in Brisbane, Australia, following a handful of isolated dog biting incidents.

A number of dog owners and enthusiasts have set up a website where anti-BSL campaigners can download a standard letter to personalise and then send to their local government to point out the failings of BSL.

Encouraged by anti BSL campaigners around the world, via the Dog Holocaust Internet List, the Australian campaigners are hoping that their concerted letter writing and e-mailing campaign will force the politicians to think again and to abandon their short-sighted 'quick fix' option of legislating against certain dog breeds which they deem to be 'dangerous' on the flimsiest of evidence.
