Critics Blame Austin's No-Kill Policy
Portland, OR -(AmmoLand.com)- In the aftermath (of a tragic dog attack), dog trainers reached out to KXAN saying the city shelter and its partners are putting the public in danger by adopting out aggressive dogs in order to maintain its status as a no-kill city.
There has been a 58 percent increase in Travis county since 2009 with 1,696 reported dog bites.
Patt Nordyke with the Texas Federation of Animal Care Societies: “Because they are adopting out animals, aggressive animals that have not been properly screened so that they can keep their 90 percent save rate. This is detrimental to the health and safety of the community as a whole.”
