Nancy and Harold wrap up our Pit Bull Series, discuss our Wonder Fosters - KD, who got adopted, Curry, and Phelps - and talk about the Montreal vote on Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) that would ban pit bull-type dogs.
Some major population areas that do ban pit bull-type dogs include Miami-Dade County, Florida, Denver, Colorado, and the Province of Ontario. Statistically, it has been difficult to see how dog bans improve public safety.
