    There is also a possibility that because Germany is part of the EU that in the future these laws may not be applied in Germany.

    We have a bull ban here in Dade County and to be honest, I don't see that it has had any effect on pet ownership whatsoever. What does happen is that pits at the shelter are put to sleep before being put up for adoption - other than that, I still see them out in people's yards and being walked in plain view, etc. No one seems to get arrested or fined for owning one despite the ban.
