Pit Bull Lovers Gather In Washington To Show That Dogs ‘Are Born Inherently Good’
Pit bull lovers gathered at the U.S. Capitol on Saturday for a demonstration against “breed-specific legislation” — laws that ban or otherwise restrict ownership of dogs by breed, most often aimed at pit bulls.
“Thank you for coming today,” shouted comedian Rebecca Corry, who organized the Million Pibble March — “pibble” being the affectionate name for pitties — on behalf of her dog Angel, who’d been severely abused by a previous owner.
“Today we are sending the message to legislators on the federal, state and local levels that killing and banning the victim is not and never will be OK, or the answer,” said Corry. “People trying to put an end to pit bull terriers live at a low level and need rescuing, too. Sadly, trying to reason with dumb is like asking a person with no arms to give you a hug.”
