The Killing Fields Of Denver - Genocide Of A Breed
891 dead and counting.
That is the tally of the number of innocent dogs that have been confiscated and killed in the last year, since the reenactment of Denver's breed ban.
891 innocent dogs have deliberately killed - euthanized by the City Of Denver - according to Animal Control in Denver just last week. The City Of Denver is killing innocent dogs at a rate of about 3 per day.
Have these dogs have done anything wrong? No - that is - except for one thing - they were born the wrong breed. They were born as pit bulls.
Denver's pit bull law is a breed ban. It prohibits any person from owning, possessing, keeping, exercising control over, maintaining, harboring, or selling a pit bull in the City and County of Denver. A pit bull is defined as any dog that is an American Pit Bull Terrier, an American Staffordshire Terrier, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, or any dog displaying the majority of physical traits of any one or more of these breeds.
Denver's breed ban has one purpose - the forced elimination of a dog breed. Denver's breed ban has also forced the owners of such dogs to make a choice: surrender their dogs to be killed or move out of the city. Any remaining pitbull type dogs in Denver are rooted out, confiscated, sometimes surrendered, and killed.
Some call it immoral, unethical, and wrong. Some call it an unconstitutional seizure of property. I call Denver's breed ban something else.....
I call it genocide.
