BSL is slowly being seen as ineffective laws because leaders of communities are being educated more about pit bulls. Pit bulls are not necessarily a breed of dog. Pit bulls are a category of dogs more than a breed. Pit bull usually groups 3 breeds of dog, “the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT), American Staffordshire Terrier (AMSTAFF), and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier (STAFFIE)” (www.understand-a-bull.com, 2007). Pit bulls have been given a bad reputation because of all the media and press that pit bulls have been in.

Boyle’s novel When the Killings Done pays attention to these difficulties, which is what makes the novel such a compelling story. He tells us how both are fighting for animal rights but do so in different ways and that is what leads us through both of their internal conflicts. One of them, (Alma), has all the power in the world but doesn’t really want it and the other one, (Dave), lacks the power the other one has so he starts to question his motives. This all makes for a great irony story which is a must read for
Reflection Reading the story of Charity Anderson was a real privilege because it showed me how your entire life can reflect upon your morals. The major moral shown by Charity was respectfulness and manners; this was lifestyle and what she believed in. One major part that played in this belief was her master being very kind. This was important because it did not ruin herself of esteem, like it did to most of the slave during the time. This made her story really special because it showed how she didn’t regret or hate having been in that time.
Pit Bull’s Aggression; Nurtured or Innate? Pit Bulls have a fearsome reputation as killers, attack dogs and receive a lot of negative reactions from the press and the general public. A lot of these connotations may be true in some cases but it is primarily the owner’s fault that their dogs behave as they do. The word "vicious" functions to vindicate the breed and cause a lot of negative reactions from the press and the general public. The phrase; “bred to kill” and “aggressive killer” are thrown around without hesitation from those that are not familiar with the breed.
While Ezinma's abduction was something that could have potentially meant her death, Ekwefi honored the traditions of her people, and did not voice any protest when the decision to do that was made. The Igbo believed in many gods, with a god for different things. For example, Ani is the earth goddess, and is responsible for all things related to the earth, like the well being of crops, and the general well being of the tribe. The Igbo ancestors also take on a divine nature to some extent. Family plays such a central role in Igbo life that the spirits of their ancestors are consulted for almost every decision and even serve as judges in legal trials (in the form of masked elders).
An example of this is when he shot Candy’s dog and he doesn’t apologise to Candy, but instead he cleans his gun in full view of everyone. This demonstrates that Carlson doesn’t feel sorry at all for shooting Candy’s dog and instead feels that Candy should apologise to him for having the dog for so long, and making him put up with the smell of the dog. However, some people might argue that Carlson is a sensitive and caring individual because before Carlson shot Candy’s dog he said “This ol’ dog suffers hisself all the time.” because “He’s all stiff with rheumatism.” This could suggest that Carlson is sensitive and caring because he wants the dog to be put out of its misery and he thinks that nobody should be made to suffer, not even a dog and he even says “I wisht somebody shoot me if I got an’ a cripple.”, which suggests that he wouldn’t want to be in pain and nobody else would either. Although I disagree with this because I think that Carlson is just trying to find another excuse for killing the dog. I think this because all the other reasons that Carlson has suggested have been reasons that suggest that he doens’t really care how the dog feels and he just cares about himself and his own wellbeing.
They provide protection, companionship and many services that make their lives much easier. Unfortunately, even these well- intended actions by pit bulls are under fire. For instance, Vietnam veteran Allen Grider resided in Aurora, Colorado with his service dog, an American Pit Bull Terrier named Precious. Because of Aurora’s breed specific legislation on pit bulls, Precious was taken away from Mr. Grider, leaving him with no one to help him with his daily needs. Mr. Grider filed a lawsuit against the city of Aurora, his case was tried, and he won.
31:20). Mrs. Dudley was worthy of being called humble, because she ministered daily to the poor, by feeding them and making clothes for them. Not only do we see humility in the characteristics of Anne Bradstreet’s mother, we also find moral strength. Mrs. Dudley is a faithful, loving wife and mother who tends to her family’s every need while staying true to her faith (Bradstreet 1-3). The writer of Proverbs states this by saying: The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain.
Animal cruelty comes in many forms and has many grave consequences. Therefore it should be acknowledged and stopped. Neglect and abandonment are the most common forms of companion animal abuse in the United States. “Other dogs and cats are deliberately abandoned by their guardians to fend for themselves in the wild or on the streets” (Regan, 84).
