kiyote: Thanks for posting this article. I was in contact with city council member Matt Walsh (Council Bluffs, IA) who was againt the breed ban of pit bulls. He emailed me to say Mayor Tom Hanafan has until Nov. 22 to veto the law. I also sent Mayor Hanafan a letter with some alternative measures to take instead of a breed ban. I've not heard back from him as of yet, or if I ever will.
Mr. Walsh said the 3 council members who approved this law were heartless and misinformed.
I hope people remember them when it comes time to re-elect!
We have a breed ban here in Esthervill, IA. We can't have Pit Bulls or Rottweilers. I was so afraid of it when I got my Doberman. Turns out there are more Dobes living in city limits than I thought. Yes it does suck. I don't remember any time reading in the paper that someone got bitten by a Pit Bull or a Rottweiler. I think it's bull. If it really was a pit bull, which I doubt, they should ban the dog, not the breed. They should have a ban on aggressive dogs, not "aggressive" breeds. It's so stupid. I want to move!!
