Thought this email from Mayor Andy Wells of St John's, Newfoundland,Canada would interest dog owners.
"In response to your email, I have stated that I am not in favour of breed specific bans. However, I do believe (based on my reading) that certain breeds of dogs do have a genetic predisposition to aggressive behaviour and violence. Among these breeds are pit bulls, rottweilers, akitas and others.
I am sorry but rottweilers make me nervous and more nervous when they are off leash. Pit bulls and rottweilers have been involved in a disproportionate number of incidents and potential incidents in this city over the past few months and citizens are concerned. "

Remember to be polite, even though he's an asshole.
