A Disabled Girl Will Keep Her Dog, and a Bad Law Will Go Away

Those of us who oppose breed-specific legislation got a small victory recently. Thanks to a nationwide backlash and an online petition, the village of Moreauville, Louisiana, now says that it will rescind an ordinance banning Pit Bulls and Rottweilers.

The ordinance is a very new one; it was passed on Oct. 13 and gave owners until Dec. 1 to get rid of their dogs. About halfway through November, Joanna Armand got a notice from the city giving her two weeks to find a new home for their Pit Bull, Zeus, or he would be taken into custody and euthanized. Or actually, “further disposition,” as the letter said.
