The new Lennox- Wicca

Wicca is a pit bull who scratched a woman and is now facing her death. She does not live in an area where there is BSL and the "attack" did not take place in an area with BSL, regardless she did not receive the rights that are granted by dogs that are accused of being attacking in Montreal because she is a pit bull. This is Breed Discrimination. The law says a dog that "bites" must wear a muzzle for 90 days and should be examined by an behaviorist. None of these things happened because she was taken away and sentenced to death. This is unfair, unlawful, cruel and needs to stop. Wicca, like Lennox, may die because of human ignorance. (Update: Wicca was killed on 7/26/2012, despite over 10,000 signatures on her petition, the judge begging for her to be pardoned, and the world watching.)
Dogs are NOT throw-away. They are sentient beings with the ability to feel, to love, to hurt and of course to change. Even if she was nipped this person, does that warrant death? Wicca's owner was interviewed and cries throughout the whole thing. Dogs are not property, they are members of our families and should be treated as such. Her 'wrong-doing' should not warrant a death sentence.... Save Wicca.
