BYB posts "Pit Bull Puppies for Sale" sign at Dog Park

Outside our local dog park is a bulletin board that mostly has "lost & found" signs, occasionally ads for dog walkers and such. I noticed yesterday that a BYB has posted a sign advertising "Pit Bull" puppies for sale. Part of me wants to take the sign down, but I thought a better approach might be to post my own sign next to it asking people who want dogs to please visit the Humane Society or local rescue groups instead. I volunteer at the Humane Society and 75% of the animals there are bully breeds.

Here's my question:

Is it better to possibly incite a riot with my own sign but educate some folks who may not have thought about the evils of BYBs before

OR

Take down the sign discretely?

I believe I would be tempted to take down the other sign, but then would the puppies still be safe or would they be abandoned somewhere? It's a tough call but putting up a sign to adopt from the shelter is a good idea even if the other sign remains.

When you have the chance to incite a riot, you should always take it.

...With that said...

If I wait to purchase these puppies from the humane society, I'm a good person?

Only if you incite the riot first. Smash some windows. Fight the power.

Because good, reputable breeders always post for sale signs outside of dog parks?
