Letters to the Editor

No bad breeds

I want to send a thank you to our mayor, Dianne Watts, for her response to the recent dog attack in Surrey (“Pit bull on rampage attacks 3”).

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Watts took the words right out of my mouth.

The dogs in these attacks are not to blame, it’s the belligerent, deadbeat people who seek out large-breed dogs and train them to be aggressive that are the real problem.

Thank you, Mayor Watts, for not succumbing to the mass hysteria of the public and refusing to ban any specific breed. In the wrong hands, even a golden retriever can be deadly.
