Plastic: Dog Ads Take A Bite Out Of Craigslist

San Francisco has been experiencing a spate of serious dog mauling incidents, including one last month which resulted in the killing of a 12-year-old boy by the family pet — a pit bull. There are some who are pressing to pass legislation which would effectively end the breeding of pit bulls or pit bull mixes in California. However, legislation takes time to be enacted so animal rights groups have taken aim at an unusual target — the online bulletin board Craigslist. A group led by East Bay Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says that Craigslist promotes animal overpopulation due to the way it runs its pet ads on the board. By extension, this overpopulation leads to more mauling incidents, so they want Craigslist to take the bite out of the problem by ending the free ads.
