Aberdeen Officer Wants Ban On Pit Bulls


Aberdeen's animal control officer wants the city to ban pit bulls.
John Weaver has asked the City Council to disallow the animals that some consider dangerous. Under his proposal, current owners of pit bulls would be allowed to keep their pets as long as they met certain conditions such as registering the animals with the city and providing proof of rabies vaccinations.
Many residents oppose any type of ban. The American News reports that an online petition of protest has more than 700 signatures.
Police Department records show eight bite or attack incidents in
the city last year involving pit bulls, and two the previous year.
