The case remained open, but the path was a cold, despite the hundreds of suggestions, tens of thousands of theories and discoveries in scientific research. Now, the FBI, which has already said that Cooper is probably dead, in search of new evidence, reported average weekend in Seattle, the epicenter of a story that seemingly can never die.

Apparently The Major Dog Breeds

The proposed regulations for the Charles County Animal include stricter controls on pit bulls, bulldogs and other "pit bull terrier type" races, holding "potentially dangerous", a label previously reserved for animals that had attacked or threatened by a person or animal.

The proposed amendment aims to reduce public contact with these dogs, according to a presentation prepared by employees of the county.

The impetus to consider new rules was a bully of a domestic cat fatal two pit bulls in the great services, head of Animal Control, Ed Tucker said Charles County commissioners on Tuesday.

Rules, supported by a hefty fine for violations, would be the American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Bull Terrier and American Bulldog, and "dogs, which are apparently the major dog breeds mentioned above," including a dog listed as one of these races with any official documents.

As potentially dangerous animals under the law, owners of pit bull dogs must be microchipped type dogs and the relationship between the number of the fiche Charles County Animal Control.

In addition, any owner who keeps or lets the dog out to close all or part of his farm, and then create a small box locked and secured to the dog that does not affect the outer fence. If the outside of a kennel owner would have to support the safe and leave the dog, even within the perimeter fence.

The owner would also have to hang a visible sign warning of "dangerous dog", always on access to the area and notify animal control if the dog is running normally.

Violations of the rules would be potentially dangerous animals and ranged from $ 50 to $ 500, while defying the rules pit bull-type dogs would increase the risk of a fine between $ 200 and $ 1,000, determined by the Animal Matters Hearing Board.

The proposal was discussed at the sites dedicated to pit bulls, including GoPitBull.com, someone posing as a woman in Austin, Texas, published the names and email addresses of County Commissioners Monday and urged readers to express their opposition polite, respectful and informative to breed specific legislation. "

Charles County received at least two of the same message boards as well.

Commissioner Ken Robinson (D) said he received "hundreds" of e-mails on the subject, most apparently sent by non-residents.

After the presentation Tucker, president of Commissioners Candice Quinn Kelly (D) has said the government needed time to reflect changes and that another work session will be held in September.

Opposition

Dozens of people turned out for the working session of the commissioners Tuesday to oppose the proposal.

Rachel Richards, of Lexington Park was presented with one of her five pit bulls, Kari, in tow. She said she feared that if other jurisdictions are beginning to restrict dogs, St. Mary's County could be next.

Kari, women brown and white, wearing a scarf printed the words "good dog" hung silently nuzzled Richards in the legs and feet during the meeting. 2-years, was allowed because it is a service dog provides emotional support, Richards said.

Richards led the standards against pit bulls to racial discrimination.

"It's like, 'You are black, can not enter" That's discrimination. Obviously it's not aggressive, "said Kari Richards.

Tom Miles of Waldorf agreed.

"It 'a form of profiling. We do not do that two-legged people, right?" He said.

Attack dogs instinctively that their babies can cry sounded like a wounded animal, and no dog should be left unsupervised with children, said Richards.

"Any dog ​​has the potential to be dangerous or vicious," said Miles.

"All dogs can bite," Richards agreed.

Jessie Rice, a dog trainer of Waldorf said that the restrictions are unfair to well-behaved dogs and their owners, and ineffective anyway. She cited her experiences working in the county of Prince George, which banned the dogs directly.

"For me, the fact is that the County of Prince George has tried to ban pit bulls and have gone to larger dogs and dangerous," as mastiffs, Rice said people who wanted to have aggressive dogs. Others, in their experience, even pit bulls maintain, and replace them if the authorities to confiscate.

These opponents have joined the Charles County Humane Society, said the director, Anita Marsh. The Group has not given control of the animals and the Commission's statement that "Our stand is ... that the Humane Society of Charles County does not support detection of the breed, special treatment or unique, for any reason. Appropriate measures security must be addressed with the individual dogs that have proven to be dangerous. "

Other companies oppose the proposed changes as well, but no representation until it has reviewed the entire document, Marsh says.

Tucker presented statistics on the county "shows" involving pit bulls, which means an assault cases, in a an animal bite or scratch of a severity of a person or another animal. The proportion of exposures involving pit bull type dogs being dragged up from 14 percent in 2008 to 19 percent so far this year. By comparison, "the kind of laboratory" sample fell 11 percent to 9 percent and the "type of pastor" 6.8 percent.

"This problem is the irresponsible pet owners keep their animals so they get on the go, and they are matters of public safety or public nuisance. We want to keep these animals from becoming wider "with the new delivery requirements, Tucker said.

The Centers for Disease Control study site in Atlanta examined the reports of dog bites involving people who died between 1979 and 1998 and found that most, 238 492, almost half were caused by dogs of unknown race. However, the "pit bull type" dog breed pure or mixed breed was involved in 76 254 or 30 percent of fatal dog attacks in the well-known pedigree, more than any other type of dog.

But the stain has warned that the statistics should not be used in a political nature, and that the dog can not bite.

Local opposition was offset by national policies of the animals.

"Breed specific legislation" is "akin to racial profiling" for dogs, said Lisa Peterson, communications director for the American Kennel Club. Instead, counties impose and enforce the laws that affect all races too, she says, because "no one breed is inherently dangerous."

Adam Goldfarb of the Humane Society of the United States have reacted similarly, saying that he seems to be around the pit bull to be demonized as a race.

"When you go back through the decades, there is always one or a few breeds that are, quote, dangerous dogs for that period. In the 60 and 70, it was Dobermans and German shepherds them. What's really nice is that if you go back to 1800, see bloodhounds, and Newfoundlands [fear], the dogs that we would never think that dangerous dogs. It's fashionable, and I think that pit bulls will eventually go out of style and something new will come, "said Goldfarb, Chief Animal body program risks.

Other changes

Treatment of animals outdoors in general, would be tighter regulations with new requirements for space, shelter and shade, a restriction limiting tethering outside 4:00 to 1:00 and to attach a ban with a collar or harness made primarily of metal.

"Tethered dogs are an interesting topic," said Tucker. "When an animal is attached, you are taking away their ability to fight or flight instinct. They have no way to escape so they are more likely to be aggressive."

The proposal will also maintain a "dangerous animal" designation established by another jurisdiction if the animal moved to Charles County, prompting a murmur of disapproval from the audience.

"It 'been a cause, determined by the Board of fierce or dangerous animals. We should go for it," said Tucker.

Lying to the authorities or animal control authorities to hide the animal under investigation should be crimes, while the growing pile of animal-related charges are also proposed, as well as increase the fine to interfere with the animal responsible for overseeing $ 50 for $ 250 and a maximum fine of $ 500 for cruelty to animals is $ 1,000.

Tucker also introduce an anti-hoarding considered, an annual license of a "fantastic animal," defined as someone who holds at least 10 animals in one place for purposes other than farming, shipping or livestock. An annual inspection is necessary.

The license costs between $ 62.50 to $ 212.50 for sterilization and $ 250 to $ 850 for non-castrated animals, according to the number. Failure to obtain a license would be fined $ 150.

Four counties of Maryland in Baltimore, Prince George, Washington and Carroll have amateur license requirements, the filing states.

The proposal to raise the price of a dog license, and introduces the licensing requirements for cats, in the footsteps of other 10 counties of Maryland to require owners to register their cats. The staff proposes to increase the license cost of $ 2, $ 5 for neutered for $ 15 and $ 25 for dogs and cats are not sterilized. In other provinces, rates range from free to $ 12 for neutered cats and $ 25 for free intact.

Issuing licenses that come with microchips, will help unite lost cats with owners, Tucker said.

"We often think of bones you give your cat out, go away a day or two days and then come back. And sometimes it is, but sometimes wonder if he sits out the owner is. ... Even if you come to us four or five days later, the animal is often no longer with us, "that have been taken out, or stop, Tucker said.

Other changes will prohibit the sale or possession of exotic animals, including poisonous snakes, monkeys and apes, wolves and wolf hybrid dogs, wild cats weighing over 30 pounds, and wildlife, including skunks, raccoons and bears, with the rules in accordance with county law of the State, the U.S. presentation.
