How irresponsible these, owners CAN be, and, they’re the ones to blame for it, not these, animals, plus, the pits are, SOCIALIZED to be mean, they weren’t mean in nature, or, do you not know that, about dogs??? Off of the Newspapers, translated…
Too Many Attacks Reported, there is Going to be a Ban in Raising the Pit Bulls, if the Citizens Want to Continue Having Them as Pet, They Will Need to be Registered. The Animal Protection Groups: Can’t Rely Solely on the Self-Assisted Registrations of the Owners of the Pits, the Government Need to Get More Active on Sending the Entry Level Workers to Investigate
The attacks of the pit bulls are frequently reported now, the Agricultural Committee made its announcements, that starting on March first, there will be a prohibition of raising and importing of pit bulls, and, locally, there came, the wave of, abandoning the pits as pets, the animal protection groups stated, that they’re worried the most of the pit bull puppy mills, they are throwing the dogs away because of the prohibition to have them as pets by the government, that the Central Government can’t rely solely on the owners to register their pits, that it would need to set up the entry level government workers to investigate4, to do a census for the population of the pits, to avoid the pits being, turned out, into strays, causing the problems in public safety.
These past two years, the attacks of the pits came more frequently, the Taidong County’s Agriculture Department found, that the registry of the pits as pets aren’t right, a lot of the people are keeping them as pets without registering, and most of these were kept in the hidden regions of the mountains, currently, they’d estimated, that there are, more than tens of pit bulls that hadn’t been microchipped yet, they’re currently checking the numbers.
A lot of the shelters across the country are taking in the pits that are strays, the Animal Protections Agency of Taoyuan found the mixed pit bulls straying around; after the biting death by the pits in Hsinchu last year, there were more news of the stray pits killing the house cats, etc., etc., etc. which suggested, that the turning the pits out aren’t expected.
The shelter personnel stated, that there are the differences in appearances in the pit bull mixes, and, it would be hard to tell, how, if pit bulls, mixed with another breed constitutes as pits, the Agricultural Committee will set up an AI recognition system, and, photographing the dog, and sending it online, then, the program will tell you if it’s a pit bull or not, but, if this program is precise enough, only time will tell.
The office manager of the animal disease control agency, Peng pointed out, up to January 10th, the shelter took in four pit bulls, two were from Zhudong Township of Jienshih County, two were from Hengshan County and Hukou County, both didn’t have microchips; recently, the large breed strays sightings had been reported, but, it isn’t absolute, that the pits are being turned out onto the streets by their owners.
this is, only, the results
Peng said, that the pits are outdoor dogs, if someone has one, the neighbors would definitely know it, and, due to how short-staffed the office is, he’d already notified the local county, city, township offices, asking the local personnel to check to see if the locals are having aggressive animals, or pits, then, after the number is confirmed, then, the office will then set up a roster, and have the workers to visit.
Based off of the mandates by the Agricultural Committee, the owners of pit bulls before March 1st, should register their animals before February 28, 2023, to keep them as pets, if exceeding the period, and the owners were reported, then, the owners will be faced with a fine of $50,000 to $250,000N.T., and the pits will be, confiscated from them.
Peng stated, that if the pits are microchipped, and registered as pets, there’s a fine of anywhere from $3,000N.T. to $15,000N.T., if the animals aren’t neutered or spayed, a fine of $50,000N.T. to $200,000N.T.s., if the dogs aren’t vaccinated with rabies, a fine of $30,000N.T. to $150,000N.T.
The C.E.O. of Animal Protections Agency, Lee told, that it’s difficult to estimate the total population of pits across the entire country, the most worrisome is that the puppy mills of pit bulls, due to the bans, will toss them all out, and once they’d become strays, for the sake of finding things to eat, they will, attack humans, strays, or the house pets. And because of how strong their jaws are, if there are the attacks, this proves to be a serious matter of public safety, the government should keep the registry of the pit bulls on file, and, punish the owners who don’t take the responsibilities more severely.
And so, this, is how the government’s, tackling THIS problem, and, they’re still, doing it all wrong! First, they should make sure, that the pit bulls are registered, and if the owners turn them out for whatever reasons, then, the owners gets put into jail, or fined severely for it, then next, comes the training, the socialization of the animals, teaching the owners to be responsible, perhaps, offering the obedience training courses for humans, socialization courses for both dogs and humans, and then, after these animals get resocialized, then, they may be less likely to attack.
