Danish Dog Breed Ban

My sister in law is Danish and from her I have learned a lot about Denmark. Yes, Denmark is innovative, and way ahead of California in many things, but in this situation, it got a little too far ahead and fell off the cliff. The Danish Dog Act of 2010 is a breed ban of 13 dog breeds and their hybrids. These are the banned breeds:
American Pit Bull Terrier
Tosa Inu
American Staffordshire Terrier
Fila Brasiliero
Dogo Argentino
American Bull Dog
Central Asian Ovtcharka
Caucasian Ovtcharka
Southern Russian Ovtcharka
Since the enactment of this Danish Breed Ban Law, more than 1400 dogs were killed because they were either one of the above 13 breeds, or a mix from them. The most recent case is "Thor", who will be put to sleep on Monday, January 7, 2013.

Quoting Michi Michael Hillinger: "Imagine you are sitting comfortably at home with your dog, the door bell rings. It is the police, here to pick up your dog and to murder him, legally. Why? Because it's the law. He's the "wrong" breed.

  1. I understood that dogs already living in Denmark when this was decided were allowed to live. Only importing & breeding more was forbidden and those dogs will naturally be put down.

  2. I am a dog owner from Malta. My first dog was a German Sheperd who gave 13 beutiful years of compamionship, after he passed away I bouth a Husky followed by a Northern Inuit six months later. They have become part of my family and we love them as such. i couldn't imagine what it would be like is such a ban entered in Malta, even though I thing that if the goverment would even think it they would be eaten alive. What really makes me angry is how much they spek about the enviorment and acuse the mediteranean countries about bird hunting. Accusing us of animal cruelty. is not this the worst king of animal cruelty and in this day and age when extiction of spieces is on everybodies lips, is not this contributing to it. Shame on the Danes and any other country that think that they can decide on which of God's creatures should live or die.
