CDC and AVMA Fight BSL

The Center of Disease Control and the American Veterinary Medical Association have fought against breed-specific legislation. The organizations find that BSL is not a means to reduce or eradicate dog bits, aggression, or dog attacks.

There is no legitimate data that shows one breed of dog is more likely to bite over another dog breed; therefore, there is nothing to prove that banning one breed will make communities safer. Singling out one or two dog breeds as a mean of control, provides the government with a false sense of accomplishment.

BSL will not result in a responsible approach to protecting a community’s citizens because it ignores the true scope of the problem.
