    They want to see the species go extinct in less than 20 years.

    Support a mandatory spay/neuter law

    Our sympathy goes out to Hilbert Jones, the man who was recently attacked by three pit bulls (“Man bitten 150 times by pit bulls,” Nov. 16).

    Often treated like living weapons or cheap alarm systems, pit bulls are one of the world’s most abused breeds of dogs. For this reason, and because dogs of any breed who haven’t been sterilized are three times more likely to bite, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals supports a mandatory spay/neuter law for pit bulls — and all dogs.

    There is no reason to bring more pit bulls into a world where so many of them will be sought out and abused because of their breed. Shelters are already forced to euthanize millions of healthy, friendly, adoptable dogs every year for lack of homes.

    Anyone who cares about pit bulls — all pit bulls, not just the lucky one sleeping in their living room — can agree that a spay/neuter law would prevent dog attacks and spare the dogs they love from tremendous suffering. To learn more, visit www.HelpingAnimals.com.

    I support a spay/neuter law for folks who spout completely illogical opinions in the LttE section of newspapers. Surely anyone who cares about logical thinking can agree.

    If we adopted mandatory spay / neuter laws for all animals, we could eliminate animal suffering in one generation, and put the PETA loonies out of a job.

    A classic win-win!

    I am all for that too. We live in a college town next to a wildlife park, and inevitably, the park is chock full of cats and dogs and even bunnies come summer when the students leave. Seems they only want part time pets. In winter when the temperatures are freezing, our yard is full of miserable cats and their half grown feral kittens desperate for some food and shelter.—Carolyn

    I like the other PETA better – People for the Eating of Tasty Animals.

    I am all for spaying/neutering our cats and dogs and believe every responsible pet owner that isn’t trying to breed their pet should do this to help stop overpopulation that is forced to be euthanized. However, it is rediculous to single out Pit Bulls as a breed that is aggressive. Some breeds are docile, some are aggressive but how that dog acts is ultimately based on how that dog is trained. Spaying/Neutering is not going to change how they are raised.
