Legislation to prohibit localities from banning certain dog breeds is under review in the Kentucky Senate. The measure got the backing of the Senate Agriculture Committee last week. Lee Greenwood with Best Friends Animal Society says it’s a property rights issue. “The science is pretty clear, as we said, there really is no connection between breed and a dog’s propensity for acting in one way or another,” said Greenwood.
Greenwood says any type of dog can be dangerous and communities should make laws that focus on the behavior of every dog, not one particular breed.
