***12/05/05 NEW INFO IN RED***
City leaders are planning a possible ban on pit bulls and other “fighting dogs.”
Aurora and Denver were, of course both brought up (remember Aurora has 10 BREEDS LISTED!!!)
Council cited the reason to discuss the issue was the "increase in the number of pit bulls passing through thier Humane Societies..."
Heads up Rottie folks...a resident held up a picture of his sons injuries...THAT HAPPENED IN CALIFORNIA...but seemed to be the deciding factor in the Councils mind to discuss this further at a later, but as-yet unknown, date.
