Portsmouth Passes Vicious Dogs Ordinance


Christine Darby had a pit bull that was put down after it got loose and injured a man and the dog he was walking.
Animal control picked the dog up and discovered Darby didn't have insurance for him, so the dog was later euthanized.
Darby says the new ordinance unfairly targets pit bull owners.
"Any dog can be vicious,” she said. “Mine wasn't vicious, and he got put down. It's not fair to the owners at all.”

*****This is the type of owner dog ordinances need to target...ones who's dogs get loose and attack/injury people and other pets...the attacking dog owners denial of their responsibility in the attack is so typical of many dog owners.
