Even more updates on Pit Bull Ban
Identification of pit bull
19. If it is alleged in any court proceeding under this Act that a dog is a pit bull, the onus of proving that the dog is not a pit bull lies on the owner of the dog.
Once again this is from Bill 132. Well, I'm no lawyer but I was always led to understand that the burden of proof rests with the accuser, not the accused. When this law hits the books I can see the lawyers having a field day with it.
