THURMONT, MARYLAND

5/22/2006

THURMONT which is 60 miles from Baltimore has Commissioner Wayne Hooper who is leaning toward
proposing a breed-specific ban against pit bulls in town to address an ongoing problem
in the Thurmont East subdivision and brought it up at the May 2 meeting.
Commissioners Bill Blakeslee and Ron Terpko seemed to be in favor of it however
Mayor Burns said Wednesday that he favors a more general ordinance that deals with aggressive dogs,
rather than a breed-specific ban. As of today there is not even a drafted proposal,
it is in discussion-so lets get those alternatives to
BSL in to the City of Thurmont!
