Animal advocates seek new pit bull legislation in special session

Apologies for the break in posting.  My fiance and I moved, we're out of town this week on business, blah blah blah...

At any rate, as most of you already know, there was a particularly narrow-minded appellate ruling in Maryland late last month concerning pit bulls.  Basically said that victims of a PB attack no longer had to show that the owner knew the dog was dangerous, only that it was at least part PB.  Worse still, it would hold landlords liable (basically discouraging LLs from ever renting to a PB owner).

Well, some advocates don't want to wait until the next regular session of the Maryland legislature to eventually look at the issue, they are asking Md. lawmakers to do something about it now.  Thanks to Ledy for the heads-up on this article in The Baltimore Sun...
