Wyoming police chief to discuss possible pit bull ban at council meeting

By Matt Vande Bunte, The Grand Rapids Press

Recent requests to regulate or ban pit bulls has prompted a review by Wyoming’s police chief. James Carmody at 7 p.m. today is scheduled to make a presentation in response to the pleas of some residents, City Clerk Heidi Isakson said.
The City Council meeting is at City Hall, 1155 28th St. SW.
Residents twice in recent weeks have asked the council to enact tougher restrictions on pit bulls including micro-chipping, muzzling and an all-out ban. A Wyoming man needed surgery this spring after he was attacked by his neighbor’s two pit bulls.
While urging against a knee-jerk reaction, Mayor Jack Poll at the time said he’d be willing to consider more stringent restrictions on pit bulls or other kinds of dogs. Like many communities, Wyoming has a law regarding dangerous or mean dogs, but does not identify any specific breeds.
