    Montana Ordinance Requires Insurance for 'Aggressive' Dogs

    July 7, 2010

    The White Sulphur Springs, Mont., city council has passed an insurance requirement for the owners of certain breeds of dogs with reputations for aggressive behaviors.

    The ordinance requires owners of pit bulls, Doberman pinschers and Rottweilers to purchase $500,000 in liability insurance, regardless of whether the animal has shown aggressive behavior.

    Owners of other dogs would be subject to the insurance requirement if their animal bites a person or acts aggressively without provocation.

    City Councilman Heith Stidham said the ordinance is meant to hold owners responsible for the medical bills if someone is attacked by a dog.

    People who had pit bulls, Dobermans and Rottweilers in White Sulphur Springs before the ordinance passed on June 17 are not subject to the insurance requirement.

  3. Who else is willing to bet that those behind passing the ordinance are somehow involved with selling liability insurance? A large majority of people are not well educated about their rights, therefore, many dog owners are forced into this shit and are powerless to protect themselves. We need more people, educated people, fighting against authority for the sake of ALL our rights and not just for the rich puppet-master people.

    Sorry, stuff like this just gets my goat. It starts with something small, like a new leash law, then that spirals into full blown breed bans, then before we all know it ALL dogs will be considered a threat and that will be the end of mans' best friend. This is a big step in the wrong direction.
