I contact the Brisbane city council to find out how they ID pitbulls and this is the response I got:
"The template documents that you have requested were developed over a period of time by the 'South East Qld Regional Animal Management Group' (SEQRAMG ) for use by local governments. The templates are quite complex and may only be used by a local government officer trained in their use to identify a dog suspected of being a prohibited breed. As the templates can be used as evidence in a court proceeding, access to the templates by a non Local Government person or organisation must be approved by the SEQRAMG.
Due to the complexity of the templates, the identification process and the sensitive nature of enforcement by Council of the restricted breed legislation , I am unable to comply with your request for a copy of the templates."
Interesting how a couple of council workers have developed an breed identification template when the world's experts couldn't do it. Maybe that's why they won't share.
Anyway, I was lucky enough to stumble on the following (it took ages)
http://www.dafrevlogancc.bigpondhosting.com/ A copy of the 22 point ID template is in the council witnesses documents.
A gutsy owner in QLD took on the Logan city council, he was successful & posted all of the court documents (bless him!). No matter the breed of your dog you should really read these documents - it just takes one jerk council worker and your dog can be taken away. Its scary to read the council witnesses "logic".
As far as I'm aware South East Queesland councils still used this template. Anyone know what the other states with BSL use?
