Pit Bull Ban Proposed in Van

By Clayton Neville, KMOO

At the Van City Council meeting Wednesday night December 8th, several citizens voiced their desire for a ban on pit bulls. Parties from both sides of the debate presented their opinions. Sharon Kanopka of Fort Worth, and several others along with their pit bulls made the trip to Van to express their condolences on recent attacks in the area and to stress the importance of education as an alternative to a ban. According to the group part of educating means making it known that the breed is not responsible. While opinions were strong at the meeting, the over all demeanor remained calm. No immediate action was taken toward the ban at the meeting but it was decided to form a four person committee to conduct research over the next few months on the issue. The committee will come back to the Van City Council to present their findings in March.
