Recently, Ricky Gervais announced that he had teamed up with the BUAV (the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection) and that they were working together to convince high officials in the UK to ban the practice of experimenting on cats and dogs.
Fast forward a few days, and the comedian once again took a stand against some people's treatment of animals. This time, the comedian spoke against breed discrimination.
“All dogs are basically good,” Ricky Gervais tweeted, as cited by Ecorazzi. “Your treatment of them determines whether they stay that way or not. It’s the same with people,” he added.
What he means is that, regardless of their breed, each and every dog grows to become friendly or aggressive depending on the training it receives from its owner.
Interestingly enough, it wasn't very long ago when President Obama also took a stand against pitt bull discrimination, and pointed out that, “Dogs of any breed can become dangerous when they're intentionally or unintentionally raised to be aggressive.”
Here's hoping this piece of information will sooner rather than later get through some people's thick skulls.
