At midnight last night, the Maryland legislature adjourned after failing to reach agreement on legislation addressing the Court of Appeals ruling that pit bull-type dogs are “inherently dangerous.” That was our last chance to reverse the ruling until lawmakers reconvene in January 2014. Because the politicians squandered the opportunity, Maryland dogs will remain in jeopardy.
We will continue to work with advocates from across the state and will be ready to fight again in January. Please take a minute to send a polite email to your lawmakers, letting them know how disappointed you are that they failed to provide relief to Maryland dog owners.
Thank you again for being a voice for Maryland dogs.
