I am really excited to include this poster on this blog. I have decided to do a research project on the affects of BSL in Montreal after having so many conversations with people, and my personal involvement with working, breathing and living for pitbull-type dogs. I feel like this is something I can contribute to the literature and awareness on pitbull-type dogs considering my current position as a graduate student. I am really hammering in on the criminizalization of us and our dogs in this study such as the required annual RCMP police check and reading today that the recruitment poster for the spring-summer 2017 by-law officers targeted people currently in the police academy who will be granted the authority to use both medication to sedate animals and a tranquilizer.
Feeling very grateful for all the support, encouragement and trust being put on me by all those who are interested in contributing to this research.
