Are Pit Bulls Banned in Egypt? Veterinary Association Clarifies the Controversy"
In response to the recent incident involving a Pit Bull attacking an individual in Sheikh Zayed and causing severe injuries, Dr. Mohamed Saif, Secretary-General of the Veterinary Association, addressed the rumors circulating about Pit Bulls being banned from entering Egypt.
Dr. Saif stated during a televised interview on Tuesday that Pit Bulls are indeed allowed to enter Egypt and are not prohibited. He emphasized that Egypt is not included in the list of countries banning this breed of dogs.
However, he cautioned against keeping any dog inside homes as they can be carriers of diseases. Dr. Saif clarified that claims suggesting Pit Bulls only attack when provoked are incorrect, emphasizing their unpredictable nature and inability to be controlled.
Highlighting their strength and aggression, Dr. Saif compared owning a Pit Bull to possessing a weapon, warning about the potential dangers associated with such animals that many fail to realize.
Furthermore, he stressed that dogs are carnivorous by nature and it is not intended as an attack on them when animal welfare organizations portray this fact. Dr. Saif explained that dogs should never roam freely but rather be restrained and muzzled to prevent any harm towards others.
