Rebecca Corry may be best known as a comedian, but she is also an animal activist. After fostering Angel, a pit bull terrier that had been used as a bait dog, Corry adopted the dog. Angel’s ears had been cut off and someone had poured battery acid on her. Angel inspired Corry to start the Stand Up For Pits Foundation.
According to King5.com on Sunday, Corry believes the push to ban “bully breeds” is ridiculous, and calls it “breed discrimination legislation.”
“Breed specific legislation is banning the victim,” she said. “You don’t ban the victim. You get to the root of the problem and solve it.”
Corry is planning an event called the “One Million Pibble March on Washington D.C.” for next May. The event’s Facebook page says that dogs will NOT be allowed at the march. It explains that “the goal of this entire march is to educate, bring awareness and end BSL in an effort to provide safe and humane communities for humans and Pibbles. Having dogs there will not accomplish or contribute our common goal. HUMANS will. If dogs could over turn laws they would have done it a long time ago. It's up to US to march on their behalf. US to BE THEIR VOICE.”
