The Trumann City Council voted in favor of a pit bull ordinance Tuesday night.
According to Mayor Sheila Walters, city council members approved a measure, which bans people from owning certain pit bull animals, which are considered vicious, from the city limits.
Walters said all animals currently in the city will be allowed to stay, but owners have two months to register the dog with Trumann Animal Control. The ordinance will also require owners to pay a $100/year licensing fee and get liability insurance.
Walters said employees with the United State Postal Service have expressed concerns over vicious dogs. She also said the city's animal control officer was recently attacked.
