Nelson Should Be Removed From Office Immediately, Say Dog Groups
Calling his comments "dangerous to the public" and highly irresponsible", private citizens and concerned dog owner groups nationwide are calling for the ouster of city attorney, Kory Nelson, following comments that the Denver's city attorney made to a reporter concerning Denver's stance on pit bulls.
Nelson was quoted in the June 24 edition of the San Francisco Chronicle as saying, "Anyone who shoots a pit bull running loose is justified."
Animal advocates and responsible dog ownership organizations from around the world have expressed outrage over Nelson's comments, as have public safety advocates.
"You just can't go around saying it's OK to shoot dogs because they're pit bulls", said one woman. "If there's a loose dog, you call animal control". She declined to give her name, but went on to say, "Does that mean it's OK for anyone with a gun to shoot a dog - because they think it's a pit bull?"`
