Muzzle It

by Kire Sdyor (writer), New Shinar, April 28, 2012

Here in my city of New Shinar they have a plan. A plan to stop dogs from biting people. Well, not all dogs. Just dogs with teeth. OK, not all dogs with teeth.

Just those breeds with a track record of biting. So, not really all dogs with a record of biting. More like one breed of dog with a track record of biting.

In reality they just want to muzzle Pit Bulls. Maybe it's the way they look. Could be it's the way they act. Might it just be our own fears projected onto one group?

The MSPCA states that "One in every four dogs brought to the MSPCA is a Pit Bull or Pit Bull mix." I've got to tell you, if I was abandoned I might bite you too. They also recommend that you Spay/Neuter your Pit Bull. If you tried that with me, I know I'd bite you.

Maybe our fear of Pit Bulls is our natural fear of things we don't understand...

Dad: "The City Council is trying to pass a law to muzzle Pit Bulls."

James (Age 9): "Why would they do that? Those people have never done anything to them."

Dad: "There afraid that they're dangerous and need to be controlled."

James: "This country was founded on religious freedom. They should be allowed to pray in peace."

Dad: "I don't think you understand what muzzling is."

James: "I just know that sending Pit Bulls after Muslims is wrong."

Dad: "There not sending Pit Bulls after Muslims, they're muzzling Pit Bulls."

James: "I don't even know what that means but I know I wouldn't like it. They should just leave the Muslims alone. That's all I'm saying."
