Attention Minneapolis area Animal lovers. Going to Court.

Whose Pet is Safe with This Kind of "Animal Control"?

A new ordinance passed in 2010 in the City of Minneapolis to make it easier for Animal Control to declare dogs either "dangerous" or "potentially dangerous", even if the dogs have, technically, done nothing wrong, is going to court.

Im sure this will spill over on to cats too if left as is.

I'm beyond disturbed. Can you say Gestapo?

I actually took a few minutes to learn how to do maore than just recieve messages on facebook just so I could post this.

Humane societies do good work at the community level on a regular basis and I get that a lot of people mean well but this kind of thing literally scares the heck out of me and infuriates me all at the same time.

Thank you for the post, I wouldn't have searched this out on my own and feel like we should all know!

Add - My grandmothers dog bit a cousin of mine years ago, my family actually hid the information from me as I had 2 small children at the time and I am pretty vocal about a hierachy in terms of people vs animals. To have somebody like me who would have had her own grandmother's dog put down in a heartbeat stand up and say this law/ordinance is just plain wrong should say something.
