5 Breeds Outlawed – Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, Dobermans, German Shepherds and Bull Mastiffs

South Dakota has voted in new laws which make it illegal to own any of either Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, Dobermans, German Shepherds, Bull Mastiffs or any cross of these breeds.

The breeds are all banned, unless they ‘help’ or are being trained to help people with disabilities.

Dean Schock, mayor, explained that the legislation was passed due to concerns from people who walk or bike around town. The legislation was voted in by 103-27.

— Excellent, well reasoned law.

So are we assuming that disabled people aren’t worthy of protecting from these ‘dangerous’ breeds?

Or do we conclude that these breeds are actually perfectly safe if trained and well socialised in a responsible manner?

Hmmmm?
