Because there is a pit bull crisis in the U.S. and a growing danger in Canada.

As a resource for public information about BSL.
This website pulls together information from hundreds of resources in an effort to help educate the public about the current pit bull crisis in the United States and the growing danger in Canada.
As a BSL resource for writers, journalists and reporters.
This website serves as a repository of information about the pit bull crisis and the need for breed-specific legislation.
For the protection of victims.
People who speak out against pit bull attacks are routinely attacked with comments intended to belittle and harass them. We want the stories of victims to be respected, acknowledged and accessible. We want the facts to be known to the public.
Example: After the death of their 14-month old son in an unprovoked pit bull attack, Wisconsin resident Jeff Borchardt became a target for hostility by fanatical pit bull owners. Pit bull fanatics went as far as suggesting “Let play kickball with jeff’s son head. he dead so not like he will need it” and “you can put a gun to your head and join your ugly son.”
In another example, police in Regina, Saskatchewan were forced to close their Facebook page as a result of threats and profanities after a policeman shot a pit bull during its attack on a police dog.
Many victims are afraid to report an attack for fear of consequences from the owner. The promise of harassment by a pit bull owner, friends or social media contacts for reporting an incident is not unusual.
As a voice for people against pit bulls.
We believe there needs to be a safe space for articles, reports, news items, charts and maps that address the pit bull crisis.
Journalists who speak out on the dangers of pit bulls are bombarded with hate mail and threatened. The pit bull advocacy movement was instrumental in having Dr. Laura fired. Its members have harassed and threatened untold journalists including Barbara Kay, Bill Tieleman, Lori Welbourne, Michael Felger, Thomas McCartney and Ann Landers.
- All pit bulls have the potential to attack people without warning.
- The majority of pit bulls are “rescued” and their background is unknown.
- Children, babies and the elderly experience the greatest number of pit bull attacks.
- Pit bulls are animal-aggressive and cause the death of thousands of other dogs and cats every single year.
