I spoke with Dennis Nichols at the Hesston City Hall.
They passed thier BSL...which includes pit bulls and ROTTIES.
He is sending me the ordinance, which I will scan and post.
According to Mr. Nichols, there have been no incidents within the community, excepting
some pit bulls got out and tore open a rabbit cage and destroyed the rabbits earlier
in the year. When I asked him why the City felt it was neccesary to ban specific breeds of dogs he
stated that other towns around them are "becoming proactive" and banning the breeds
before a problem can occur. These desicions are being based on an incident in Wichita
where two girls were attacked by a pit bull?
So folks, that is the scoop...another one bites the dust.
