I know I'm a couple days late with this - but better late than never! Especially since I read for the first time tonight that poor Tidus was kept on death row while he was waiting to go to trial - that to me is inexcusable.
The story of Tidus is that he is was going to become a victim of the pit bull ban in Ontario. But his owner fought the charge in court and guess what? She won! It's the first court challenge that has won in Ontario - and it's not going to be the last. The judge saw that the legislation is flawed and vague and will do nothing but kill the wrong dogs for the wrong reasons. So Tidus gets to live - after spending months in a cage for no reason at all. What a waste of a short life.
I found a couple articles at a good dog blog about the Ontario dog problem that I found tonight at - "Defend a bull blog"
