Salina To Be Part of National Animal Protest
KSAL Staff - September 18, 2015 7:14 am
A coordinated animal protest event scheduled across the country on Friday is designed to bring awareness and an end to breed specific animal laws, and “kill shelters” that euthanize cats and dogs. Salina is among cities where events are planned.
Locally, a Friday evening candlelight vigil is planned at the Salina City / County Building. Local organizers ask that supporters wear red or blue, and bring a candle.
The local event is being organized by the Salina Repeal BSL group. The group is trying to get the city’s pit bull ban repealed.
Rather than having a law that bans one specific breed of dog, instead the group proposes that, “combined with their leash law, a breed neutral dangerous dog law would be effective in reducing the numbers of truly dangerous dogs in Salina. It would give the city staff the tools with which to go after irresponsible dog owners, while still allowing these happy, healthy, loving dogs to keep their families that they love and their homes.”
The Friday night candlelight vigil in Salina will be recorded, and it will be included in a documentary about the event. It is scheduled from 7 – 9 at the Salina City / County Building, 300 W. Ash.
