The Pretext For Warrantless Search Seizure
“If pit bulls were illegal to possess, law enforcement officials could obtain search warrants where pit bulls are discovered and during such a search, additional
evidence of their dog fighting could be discovered and seized for felony prosecutions”.
- Kory Nelson, City Attorney, Denver, Colorado
True Defenders or "Animal Protection" Pretenders?
"PETA supports legislation that bans the breeding of pitbulls...."
"Requiring the sterilization of pit bulls does not have the same problems as traditional breed-specific legislation……………………”

CoCo Must Die
On August 5, 2008, a hearing officer employed by the city of Denver deemed "Coco," the beloved companion of Desiree Arnold and family, a "pit bull" under the city's pit bull extermination law.
Doug Kelley, director of the Animal Control and Care Division for Denver, refused requests to allow Coco taken in by another loving family outside the city.
Sadly, CoCo was euthanized on August 6, 2006 by the City of Denver - a heinous act.
