"The Netherlands to lift 15-year ban on owning, breeding pit bulls"

Post  celticpitbulls on Wed Jun 11, 2008 11:41 am

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - The Dutch government says it will lift a long-standing ban on pit bulls because it did not lead to any decrease in bite incidents.

cheers yeah there starting to cop on...

Agriculture Minister Gerda Verburg has informed parliament of the decision, which follows the advice of a commission of experts appointed to review the policy. Instead, the country will focus on enforcing local leashing laws and owner education programs.

would this be better for DCC to enforce rather than restricting us from training classes and so on??

Spokesman Koen Geelink said Monday the ministry hopes to have a new policy in place by year-end in which dogs that have displayed aggression will be tested by an expert.

The country banned the breeding and possession of pit bulls in 1993, after three children were killed by the dogs.


its a pity Ireland and the UK wouldn't take a leaf out of there book
