Riverside County orders sterilization of pit bulls

Since the order exempts breeders and service dogs, I like the idea of requiring sterilization of all family pets, not just Pit Bulls. Since Pit/Pit mixes and Chihuahua’s are the most abundant dogs in shelters, I think the STATE should prohibit importation of these and other dog breeds from out-of-state-breeders and substantially limit the licenses for in-state breeders. Let’s not only target bad owners of Pit Bulls, but bad owners and breeders of all all dogs.

Dogs in California and North Carolina Abused in Similar Way

The City of Sacramento, Yolo County, and now North Carolina are seeing a form of animal abuse with a distinct, gruesome signature.

“Very distinctive burn-marks.  Always across the back, usually the full length of the dog from the back of the head all the way down to the tail,” said Gina Knepp the Manager of Animal Care Services for the City of Sacramento. “Unfortunately, it appears the Pit Bull type of breed, or dog, is in every case we’ve seen. Those are the common denominators.”

So far, there are three cases locally. Two in the City limits of Sacramento, and a third just last week in the Clarksburg area of Yolo County.

“The area of Clarksburg and Babble Slough is not very far from Sacramento City. It’s only over the bridge,” said Vicky Fletcher, who is with Yolo County Animal Services.  “What does my gut tell me? There is somebody out there we need to find out about.”

The case is gaining some national exposure too. In the past month, three more cases have been discovered. All in a ten mile radius near Raleigh, North Carolina.

“It’s a mystery and we’d like to solve it,” said Knepp. “I think there is somebody out there who can say, hey we know what this is.”
