CFN –  Thousands are mourning the senseless murder of Wicca, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier became a victim of what happens when Bureaucrats go crazy.

The actual documentation of this case is what makes it most bizarre.  No hospital reports.  No bite marks.  No actual testimony of a bite.  No real process to deal with the incident.  Just the stroke of a pen leading to a death sentence.

If this had been my Dachshund that lunged it most likely would never have come to this poor animal being destroyed at the age of five.

There were options, but for some reason the City of Montreal refused to view them.   Wicca was reviewed by a group and deemed non-anti social.    The City simply refused to consider options in spite of petitions from all across North America.

Owner Chris Papakostas  claims that Wicca was simply startled and defended him.  That Wicca was simply “spooked.”

Would this incident have happened if Wicca was muzzled when outside?   As a Rottie owner myself I’m hyper careful about who I expose my dog to, and what interaction I allow.

In the meanwhile poor Wicca is no more.   Her life snuffed out  because of breed prejudice, ignorance, and a city determined not to listen to the public and consider options.

Technically the by laws are written so that if someone invades your home for example and your dog protects you it could be put down for simply defending its owner.  Does that make sense?

There will be a protest at Place des Arts today in Montreal at 5 PM over the murder of Wicca.   In the meanwhile you can let Montreal know what you think if its behavior.

Here is the contact info:

Please send an email to the Mayor of Montreal Monsieur Gérald Tremblay, telling him what you think of BSL.

Here is a handy link to the story: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2012/07/26/wicca-pitbull-court-battle.html

I think we need a speciaized system specifically for animals because they deserve better and more just treatment. I hope that Wicca’s death serves as the impetus for such a movement forward. It seems to me that the cruelty we perpetrate on animals in our society is one of the reasons why our society cannot progress. RIP Wicca.

Here is a copy of a letter I just sent to the Mayor of Montreal: Honorable M. le Maire, Je suis très déçu de votre décision de supporter la manière que vous avez implémenter un ordre de condamnation au sujet de Wicca. Il me semble que ce n’est pas juste de la faire condamner a la mort puisque elle n’a pas eu la chance de se défendre. Il nous faut un nouveau système de justice envers les animaux qui ne sont pas capable de communiquer ni de se défendre. Je vous implore de prendre une action qui nous redonnerais la… Read more »

Honestly, the dog should be put down. Most of you who cry and complain about these issues are either, naive or have never lived life like the rest of us. Yes dogs should not be put in pain or tortured, but if a single dog bites a human that’s the end of the line for that dog to me. People don’t realise that Dogs are not humans, yes they may be mans best friend but they do not understand what is okay and not okay and they should not be fully trusted ever. You may think I’m a pigheaded person… Read more »
