Has passed restrictive BSL. Owners can keep their dogs…but again folks, with the price of
insurance and compliance on all the other issues that go with restrictions…the
city has effectively managed to all BT ban the breed.
Reason for this action is "drug dealers use them to guard their houses"
Uhmmm…sooooo lets venture on out there and perhaps deal with the owners
who are in clear NON-compliance with the law??
Animal Control supports the action-giving the reason
"they are being bred in town to be sold to dog-fighters."
Again…uhhmmmm…if you KNOW these people are dog fighters…please arrest them.
This is a band-aide which will NEVER address the issue
of irresponsible owners-who will just pick another breed to be irresponsible with.

5-3
The city waived their own rules and have passed an ordinance restricting the keeping of pit bull breed dogs in the city. More details later!
