05. 18. 11. And on the heels of yet another unexpected and unprovoked attack involving a Calgary pit bull comes the first of the "adoptions" of the 34 pit bulls seized from a breeding operation (that 34 doesn't include all of the puppies which will be up for "adoption" once they are born). Desiree Arsenault of the Calgary Humane Society explains that they are very magnanimously planning to release the pits a few at a time to avoid compromising adoptions of other breeds. Huh? It doesn't matter how slowly you adopt them out, Desiree, there will still be 58 (remember the puppies) pit bulls bumping 58 normal dogs from homes.
CHS assures us these dogs have all been "temperament tested" and have all passed with "flying colors". How do you accurately assess the temperament of a fighting dog that hasn't yet reached maturity, Desiree? Were they extensively tested with other dogs in provocative situations? Doubt it. Were they extensively tested with cats in provocative situations? Doubt it. Farm animals? Children? Probably not at all and not at all.
I am going to add a new prediction - we will soon see a violent incident involving one of these pit bulls.
