A BREAKING DOCUMENTARY
UNFOLDING THE RAW TRUTH ON BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION.
The organization of MCABSL, Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation, wish to inform all dog owners of the BSL in Miami, Breed Specific Legislation. BSL is a law that bans or restricts a person or persons to own a particular breed dog. These laws are declaring an entire breed of dog as "dangerous or vicious" based on actions of a few dogs from a breed. The BSL has been started in Miami Dade County but we are here to stop this discrimination and make sure this legislation does not infect other cities, counties and states.
The BSL in Miami targets and punishes dogs and their owners of certain breeds listed in this legislation regardless if a dog is well behaved, taken care of or never had a history of aggression or biting. This legislation condemns the whole breed instead of taking a case by case dog incident to determine whether the dog is dangerous. BSL applies only to dogs of a certain appearance, not to any and all dogs. It does not take into consideration how the owner has raised, trained, or managed the dog. This legislation does not take into account the dog’s actual behavior.
Visit the MCABSL website to find out the full details of BSL in Miami, see the work they do, meet the volunteers and even become a member. Also check out this site to find out about their documentary due out in the fall of 2010.
