Shame on Denver

*sigh* It is so frustrating when I read the numbers.

"Since May, more than 380 dogs have been impounded and at least 260 destroyed _ an average of more than three a day." And, how many of these dogs were just normal, run of the mill dogs, murdered based on how they look? Because the ban does not just ban three breeds, it bans any and all dogs that even LOOK like the prohibited breeds. Pisses me off.

But thank god for compassionate folk: "Some owners, like Steffan, have won a reprieve for their pets with help from a rescue group. The group got Xena released by signing an affidavit stating that the animal would never return to Denver. The group took the dog to Mariah's Promise in Divide, an animal sanctuary that has accepted more than three dozen pit bulls from Denver."
