Pitbull massacre needs to be stopped (warning: saddening photos)

Hi everyone. I'm sorry to post the following photos as they are deeply disturbing and saddening, but this issue really needs attention. Please take a few minutes to let the city of Denver know that this massacre against pit bulls will not be tolerated.

Euthanized pit bulls.

Here's a sample letter you can send to the mayor of Denver. It's a good idea to write your own personal letter as long as it's respectful (no need to give animal rights activists a bad name), but it still makes an impact if you'd like to just send the sample letter.

Send to:

Mayor John W. Hickenlooper,

Picking up a newspaper each day, can be heartbreaking enough, but when I read about all the
events happening in Denver, Cincinnati, and Miami, I knew something had to be done. Innocent
dogs are being torn from their owners and either put on death-row, senselessly killed, or being
shipped far away with the promise from owners they won't return to the area. Not only are Pit Bulls
themselves being shipped away and killed, but dogs that LOOK like Pit Bulls. Please stop this ban
now, before it is too late.

Too many broken hearts have already occurred over this, owners crying over the death of their
beloved companions, and dogs never seeing the owners they have come to adore again; all over
their breed. Not all Pit Bulls are "trained to be angry and mean", as you will have read in the news
article. It's all a matter of how they were trained. Please open your hearts, and sign this petition.
After all, if your dogs' breed was suddenly banned, or in danger of being killed off, wouldn't you
want to do something to stop it??

  2. One year they decided to ban pit bulls in the city of Denver. They stated that they were a dangerous breed. I was living outside of Denver when it happened and the shelters in all the suburbs became overwhelmed with pit bulls. They put so many of them down because they couldn't find homes for them. The few incidents involving pit bulls were an owner issue, not a breed issue. Just another form of discrimination. A lot of other cities are starting to enact the same bans and it's awful.
