Physical Control Matters Not!

Do you think Pitbulls are dangerous dogs? Many progressive lawmakers think they should be able to force you to sterilize yours.
Ultimate Guide to Understanding Dangerous Dog Sterilization Laws

Even if it is a potentially dangerous dog, should you be barred from being an owner or keeper? Should the so-called dangerous dog be sent to be euthanized at an animal shelter in the name of public safety?

I am Michael Ehline, of Ehline Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys, APLC. Established in 2005, we are the premier premises liability and dog bite injury law firm in CA. I am here to discuss pertinent information about dangerous dog ordinances for a new owner, families, and even law enforcement personnel wanting to learn about the people and animals affected.

More and more, we see local municipalities ignoring the Constitution and passing laws to restrict others of their life, liberty, and property.

The new generation seems to believe that the government knows best. They are ceding many rights our founders fought and died for, especially regarding the Second Amendment, and apparently against a dog’s owner, even though they are domestic animals.

Reasons People Surrender Your Rights?

The new mentality that it’s the other guy’s rights, not mine, seems to be the pervasive mindset. More and more, society is voting itself into an Orwellian, statist inferno. Most individuals are happily doing it, just like the concentration camp victims of the ’30s, and 40’s flocking to the cattle carts.

What is this new extinguishment of freedom that many are happily giving up? It has to do with a particular breed of allegedly dangerous dogs that people are afraid of, Pitbulls. Municipalities often see pit bulls as a major risk of attack and severe physical injury or death.

There Is Now a Severe Reduction in Impounded Pitbulls

Across the country and often led by California cities, municipalities single this breed out. Many of these actions started with San Francisco, which passed a dangerous dog determination, pit bull ban in 2006, causing many an impounded dog by local animal control.

This eventually led to a severe reduction of pit bulls in local pounds, as well as the euthanasia rate, regardless of whether these were vicious dogs or had inflicted severe injury on anyone. ABC News reported that Riverside County had enacted tough new actions against potentially dangerous dogs. This domestic animal law included ordering all pit bulls over four months old spayed or neutered regard. This occurred after the county said it had been impounding 3,500-4,000 pit bulls annually to prevent such dog from harming others with dog bites, etc. Only police dogs are exempt from animal control agency enforcement.

These actions happened after a wave of reported physical injury claims by pit bulls.

  • This breed, in particular, has been blamed for hundreds of physical injury cases annually in California.

Most of all, that occurred after the breed became popular with new residents in the 909 and 951 area codes. Municipalities consider new laws against pit bulls and other animals each year. Each law adds more precedent.

Why So Many Dangerous Dog Cases in the Inland Empire?

Not mentioned as a reason for, or in the dangerous dog ordinance itself, is why there are so many Pit Bull attacks all of a sudden in the Inland Empire. Could it be all the gang types, thugs, and welfare cases that have been flocking to Riverside and San Bernardino for the last six years? Are they moving due to the high cost of living in LA, their old hoods and taking their dangerous dog with them?

Gang Bangers Love Them?

This particular breed of dog is popular with gang bangers and hoodlums since these dogs make them look “tough.” So naturally, the owners train these dogs to be vicious. And of course, it is the responsible Pit Bull owner who is hurt by these laws, since like gun laws, criminals do not abide by these bad laws.

  • There are already negligence laws on the books to deal with dog attacks
  • Municipal laws are obviously an emotion-based, knee-jerk response to news spikes.

Furthermore, if you or a loved one was involved in a pit bull attack, immediate medical attention is needed. How the event happened, and an exact record of the injury should be kept. Especially this remains true considering there could be many long-term recovery issues involved with such an attack.

Children Make Up Many Dangerous Dog Bite Victims

Children are statistically more likely to get bit and could face years of scarring and humiliation as a result. Owners of these animals are usually legally responsible for such attacks. This is true especially if they are in violation of local law regarding these dogs. But liability attaches irrespective as to whether there is a statute that requires dogs to be sterilized, etc.

In Need of Dog Bite Representation?

In addition to medical coverage, legal representation is also necessary. Having an advocate that can fight for the costs of your recovery and understands the pain that you are suffering can make all the difference. The bottom line, whether you think all is good and well that Orwell is now normal and acceptable, you still will need legal help.

This remains true even if it was a puppy that bit you. Get it? No matter what type of breed bites you, it can still mess you up. So these laws that make law-abiding citizens into criminals will not change that you need compensation for your injuries.

After all, the sterilization ordinance pays the municipality and its career bureaucrats who are more concerned about their pensions and how much a politician will give them from your paycheck. This remains a key reason why many government employees vote Democrat. They want more government and more regulations.

For example, tickets and fines. In other words, money earmarked for victims is often earmarked for government employees, bloated pensions, and big government.
