In the wake of several dog attacks in Mississippi, many of them from pit bulls, comes a 24-page bill, dubbed the Mississippi Regulation of Dangerous Dogs Act. (HB 1261)
Those pages are drawing serious criticism, and some believe that legislation violates the U.S. Constitution.
Pit bull owner Don Tullos believes that.
“As you can see right here with Colt, they’re not all the same,” Tullos said.
Colt is Tullos’ three-year-old pit bull, a shy dog who eventually warmed up to his new visitors.
“He came to us when he was about a year old, and he was petrified of people. He would literally tuck his tail and run. Now he comes,well, you saw,” Tullos said. “He lets you pet him, love on him.”
Tullos said his dog is proof that people can’t label a breed as inherently dangerous.
