I am looking for an article (from the Humane Society of the United
States' own site) that told of a kennel of confiscated fighting pit
bulls in a Canadian city that were temperament tested by a British
animal behaviorist so the court could determine if they were suitable
for adoption. The behaviorist (from the UK, not at all a pit
bull-friendly country) said the dogs were perfectly friendly and gentle
toward humans, and recommended adopting them out. But Randall Lockwood
of the HSUS went up to Canada and testified that "all fighting dogs are
dangerous to people and should be destroyed" (or something to that
effect). In any case, the poor dogs were all euthanized as a result of
Lockwood's testimony. He isn't even a Canadian citizen. The Humane (?)
Society of the United States was responsible for the deaths of an entire
kennel of non-dangerous dogs, simply because of their breed.
I have looked for this article on search engines and I cannot find it.
Does anyone remember this case? Do you have any links to the original
article or an article about the case? If so, will you please post
them? Thank you,
