    Seriously, the incorrect information that gets bandied about drives me insane.
    Anne if you read the rest of what I said ie:
    Dogs who look like PBs or crosses of at this stage the only way for them to be safe is to be registered as PB or cross of. Or to just get the hell out of dodge and move to a State with better or no laws.
    I stated that the only way for the dogs to be safe is to be registered as a PB or PB cross. Because they CAN declare a dog that is registered as a Non Restricted breed a Pitbull and seize them.
    So I wasn't giving out incorrect information. I made it clear dogs registered as PBs and Crosses of are safe, so long as it is done before 29th September.

    [QUOTE=Rid****;136856]I will wait to see just how all this pans out.
    though I do know that at this minute my dogs neck isn't on the chopping block.
    I don't know what I would do if it was him under threat. So I can't make a remark on this as it can only be done by those who are affected.
    Though I know I will watch this unfold.

    It is illogical to think that the Council would not firstly check out if there is a REGISTERED dog on the property on their records and it is just as illogical to assume that if there is a dog registered at the property as some other breed, that going on a neighbours say so, even though there have been no other issues, that they would have the time and resources to check out the dog and then remove it in order to euthanase it on a whim and yet iof it is registered as a ALREADY RECOGNISED DANGEROUS BREED it would not be euthd!

    This is just another line of fear spreading that I cannot fathom why intelligent people join in on.

    Think about it! Why would they NOT euth a registered Pb but they would euth a dog registered as something else! Seriously, it doesn't make sense!!

    It doesn't make sense because it is HYPE and FEAR that is carried by the media.

    Well the Victorian Government has called it a "search and destroy" mission and will be putting on more rangers and putting more resources towards this "mission". And the Victorian Government (as well as everyone else) knows full well MANY restricted breed dog owners register their dogs as Non restricted breeds to avoid the restrictions required. I am just trying to be realistic, sticking our head in the sand won't help.

    In the end all I am saying is if your dog isn't registered and it is a PB or looks like a PB then register your dog NOW. And if you have a dog that looks like a PB then BE CAREFUL.

    I did read it and the dog was wandering the streets. It doesn't matter what state it iwas in, it would be in trouble because of its breed.

    That isn't a very good example.

    I am not saying that people shouldn't be wary. What I am saying is that the hype about doom and gloom all over the net at the moment is largely factless that is creating uneccessary fear.

    The bit above about them seizing and killing registered dogs is just one example.

    WTF they have gone mad!

    Carry a big whomping stick in Vic peeps, the sickos with flaming pitch forks and those idiot dunce caps are running loose.
    It is not based on any fact, and is just spreading unneccessary fear.

    Councils call for more officers to hunt dangerous pit bulls

    COUNCILS want the State Government to give them enough officers to comb the suburbs looking for pit bulls and other dangerous dogs.

    The Municipal Association of Victoria has asked the Coalition for resources to respond to a wave of calls to the dangerous dog hotline as well as teams of officers to make street by street searches in the suburbs most likely to have unregistered pit bulls.

    The Dob in a Dangerous Dog hotline received 122 calls yesterday, with 37 reports of suspect dogs passed to councils for follow-up action.

    Two weeks after the horrifying death of Ayen Chol, four, in St Albans, Parliament yesterday began introducing guidelines to officially label pit bulls and end an amnesty on September 30 so any unregistered restricted-breed dogs can be destroyed.

    The Government also said it would pass legislation in a fortnight to introduce a new crime to jail the owners of dogs who attack people similar to culpable driving, which carries a sentence up to 20 years.

    The Government and MAV will monitor calls to the dangerous dog hotline before deciding how many staff it will promise councils.

    MAV chief executive Rob Spence also called for a team of dedicated officers to patrol areas such as Brimbank, Dandenong, and suburbs in outer Melbourne where there are high concentrations of restricted breed dogs.

    "The councils are concerned about the workload but understand that we have to do it and are really distraught about what happened to that child," he said.

    The RSPCA reported it had been contacted by dozens of frightened pet owners fearing their dogs will be mistakenly killed.

    "People are frightened that their dogs will be mistaken for a pit bull or for a dangerous breed when in fact they're not," RSPCA Victoria chief executive Maria Mercurio said.

    "It's a very dangerous way to be going about this. Even so-called experts have difficulty determining exact breeds, particularly with cross breeds."

    Lort Smith Animal Hospital shelter manager Liz Walker congratulated the government for its "gloves off" approach in dealing with the dangerous dog situation, but said it needed to expand the measures to combat all dangerous dogs and not just those of particular breeds.

    "Beefing up the legislation and forcing people to be more responsible is essential," she said.

    "They need to broaden it, make sure there's very clear perameters and process for determining if its a pitbull or a cross breed."

    Agriculture Minister Peter Walsh said pit bull and pit bull cross owners would not be given a second chance after September 30 to register their dogs. They could notify authorities now or risk having them destroyed.

    "After September 30, when the amnesty finishes, if they have a pit bull type dog that fits the description ... councils will seize that dog and destroy it," he warned.

    "It is not an issue of fining them if they have an illegal restricted breed type dog _ it is a matter that councils will have the power to seize it and destroy it."

    ANYONE wanting to identify a pit bull or other dangerous dog living in their neighbourhood can call 1300 101 080 from 8am to 6pm, seven days a week.

    Just thought I'd point out that very important point that keeps being overlooked.
