Sign the Petition to

Laguna Beach City Council Members: Bob Whalen, Steve Diceterow, Toni Isemen, Elizabeth Pearson, Kelly Boyd Animal Control officers Joy Falk, John Thompson, Dave Pietarila

THE LAW IS FOR EVERYONE. Laguna beach needs to cite the Kelly family for the incompetent and unnecessary attack by their vicious dog on an innocent seal. Animal control is for everyone and the laws regulating dogs need to apply to all. The city council needs to mail the Kelly family a citation and they need to pay a fine, just like any other dog owners would have to do in a similar situation.
Gabrielle Gifford's Husband Mark Kelly  walked away when his family's vicious dog attacked an innocent seal lion on a Cailfornia beach. He did not report the attack, or even look to see if the animal needed vet services. Animal cruelty charges are warranted, also.

This news report from USA today is important because it is the only media outlet so far that has put forth the fact that the attack went on for 10 long minutes.  If you can't get your "dog" to release a poor helpless animal, that obviously is no threat and cannot fight back, then you obviously cannot control your dog. WHAT IF THIS WAS A CHILD?

SIX innocent people have already been killed by pitbulls this year. I stand corrected.  A seventh person , a Toddler was killed by Pitulls Today,March 27th in Bryan County, Georgia.   An eight victim was a  man that was hit by a car while running from two charging pitbulls. Hundreds of others have survived horrific life-changing maulings this year on themselves or witnessed their pets being mauled to death by pitbulls. Obviously, people need to be responsible and able to control the animals they choose as pets, and all too often they cannot control these dogs.

The vicious attack disturbed the peace of those who went to the beach for tranquility and relaxation. The memory of the horrific attack will forever be embedded in the minds  of the unfortunate beach goers who had to witness the irresponsible and incompetent owners of a dog that was too much for them to handle. Watch the video and see for yourself.

Gabrielle Gifford and her husband are advocating for responsible gun ownership yet they don't see any problems with people being irresponsible with powerful pitbull dogs? Laguna Beach residents want to know that other irresponsible dog owners won't act irresponsiblty and subject them to a traumatizing dog attack.

THE LAW IS FOR EVERYONE. EVERYONE must be responsible for their animals. If a person can't control their dog, they are normally CITED at the very least. Money and Politics shouldn't allow irresponsible dog owners to escape responsiblity. The laws protect people and wild life, and the Kelly Family should be cited, as leash laws, and responsible control of pets is the Law in Laguna Beach.  Responsible control of powerful dogs is required of ALL pet  owners. Laguna Beach officials need to show residents that they intend to enforce these laws for the good of all.
