Well, we speculated about it last week but we never actually thought it would happen. Especially not this fast. But almost immediately after Quebec city made their announcement, our city officials quickly jumped on the band wagon.\nMontreal is officially banning Pit Bulls.\nMayor Dennis Coderre made the announcement on Saturday after a coroner's report confirmed that it was in fact the pit bull bite that caused the death of the woman in Pointe-Aux-Trembles.\nLuckily the Mayor is not completely insane, so no one will be showing up at your door and taking any pit bulls away to be euthanized. Instead there will be a ban on future pit bull adoptions.\nAs for the people are already own a pit bull, they will have to respect some strict regulations starting this September:\nAll pit bulls must be neutered \tAll pit bulls must be micro-chipped. \tPit bull owners will have to submit to an evaluation. \tPit bulls will be forced to wear muzzles when they're out in public\nThe mayor also confirmed that the ban might extend to other dog breeds and although they haven't said which breeds it might include, these are the most "dangerous" dog breeds that normally get thrown under the bus:\nPit bull \tRottweiler \tHusky \tGerman \tChow\nMany groups including the SPCA are against this plan of action and have said that they will contest the mayor's plan because they believe that these kinds of rules take away responsibility from the owner and would also cause the death of thousands of dogs.\nSo even though we're not euthanizing them, we're pretty much condemning them to death.\nAdd mtlblog on Snapchat.
