DATED:July 1, 1998 Thanks to Keir Negron for this information.

Montgomery County, Virginia:

"Pitbulls were the topic of a meeting today between Montgomery County Council members and animal control officers.

They're concerned over several recent attacks by pitbulls _ including one on Sunday, when four dogs bit an elderly man mowing his lawn.

Some council members want pitbulls to be banned. But some animal control officials say the problem is the dog owner, not the breed, and that owners must be better educated."

Can someone follow up on this one.... jan
