Last Saturday, an eleven-year-old girl was seriously injured after being attacked by American bully XL. A man died on Thursday after being attacked by a dog suspected to be of the same breed. Last year, there were ten deaths in the UK linked to the strain.
This has caused people to react and support the government’s proposal to ban the dog breed in the country, reports said Watchman.
Since the American Bully XL is not recognized as a separate breed in the UK, the country’s Prime Minister Rishi Sunak now wants it to be done as soon as possible, so that it can then be banned in the country. The task of characterizing the dog breed will be carried out by police officers along with dog experts.
– We will then ban the breed under the Dangerous Dogs Act and it will come into force at the end of the year, says Rishi Sunak in a video shared on X.
– The American Bully XL poses a danger to our societies, especially our children.
There are four dog breeds currently banned in the UK: the Pit Bull Terrier, the Japanese Tosa, the Dogo Argentino, and the Fila Brasileiro.
