Pit Bulls Of The World Are Revolting

BREA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Protesting has gone to the dogs – literally.

That’s because on October 28, dog owners and their persecuted pooches in Brea, California; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Indianapolis, Indiana; Kansas City, Missouri; Pelham, Alabama; and West Palm Beach, Florida; are banning together and holding a series of marches to protest discrimination against pit bulls.

Event organizer Paula Terifaj, a veterinarian in Brea, California, says she was inspired to start what she calls a “rover-lution” after she caught wind that legislators in Denver, Colorado, had banned residents from owning pit bulls and were forcing people to give up their pets.

As she puts it, “It was like the Holocaust for dogs.”

She says she expects more than a hundred protesters to pound the pavement with her to Brea’s City Hall next week and says she wants people to realize pit bulls are “some of the least aggressive dogs there are.”

Says Terifaj: “We think dogs should be judged on a dog- by-dog basis not as a breed – it’s racism and no different than racism against the Latinos and Blacks.”
