Gandhi stated that the greatness of a nation is measured by the compassion given to its animals.If this is true, the Toledo Ohio became moved a little closer to greatness by accepting the resignation of Mr Skeldon.

Decades of death may soon end for dogs that are born without benefit of a pedigree into a city that ruled its dogs with a net and a hypodermic needle.

But a word of caution.

He may have been the king of the kill, but he leaves behind minions that could readily continue his swath of death.

Do not stop the public pressure, continue to speak up, and never stop speaking out against BSL .The truth must prevail.BSL only kills dogs, it does not make our communities any safer from IRRESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERS.

Until all references to breeds or to a ‘look’ of a dog are struck down and replaced with nonbreed specific dangerous dog bylaws NO DOG IS SAFE.

Toledeo dog owners….we salute you.

  1. Actually, Gandhi didn’t say that. It has been falsely attributed to him by various orgs, including the arch hypocrites at Peta.

    Today’s fact.

  2. I’ve searched the Internet after Fido’s comment. Can’t find anything disproving the quote’s author as Gandhi, but did find a LOT quoting him. Knowing the Internet, popularity of a “fact” does not make it one.

    So, instead, here are a few similar quotes, from which the Gandhi one may have sprung.

    Our society must make it right and possible for old people not to fear the young or be deserted by them, for the test of a civilization is the way that it cares for its helpless members.
    – Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973), My Several Worlds [1954].

    The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
    – Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    The most certain test by which we judge whether a country is really free is the amount of security enjoyed by minorities.
    – John E. E. Dalberg, Lord Acton, The History of Freedom in Antiquity, [1877].

    “…the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped. ”
    – Last Speech of Hubert H. Humphrey, November 1 1977, Washington D.C.

    “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.”
    – Mahatma Ghandi

    “Any society, any nation, is judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members — the last, the least, the littlest.”
    – Cardinal Roger Mahony, In a 1998 letter, Creating a Culture of Life

    The greatness of America is in how it treats its weakest members: the elderly, the infirm, the handicapped, the underprivileged, the unborn.
    – Bill Federer

    “A society will be judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members and among the most vulnerable are surely the unborn and the dying,”
    – Pope John Paul II
