This is absolutely unconscionable. This town in Louisiana has banned all pit bulls and rottweilers, and come December 1st, they apparently plan to start seizing people's pets and taking them to the veterinarian for "further disposition": http://mashable.com/2014/11/23/town-bans-pit-bulls/

There's a MoveOn petition linked in the article with nearly 100,000 signatures, but I don't have much faith in internet petitions. Here's the letter that was sent to residents:

That is absolutely horrible.

This is awful. I don't believe much in online petitions, either. Is there anything else we can do?

If google's to be believed, Moreauville has a population of under 1,000--- which makes this policy seem even more pointed.

Good god. What is wrong with people?! At the very least any existing pets should be grandfathered in.

I hate BSL.

I was wondering the same thing. According to one article I read, the alderman said he would consider reversing the ban if there was enough public outcry. Unfortunately, the next council meeting is Dec 8th, a week after all families in the town are supposed to have gotten rid of their dogs.
