Title: SC - Anderson City Leaders Propose A Pit Bull Ban
Post by: Newcastle on April 11, 2008, 05:49:28 PM

The city of Anderson wants to stop people from owning more pit bulls.

City Council member Tony Stewart is proposing a ban on new pit bulls and tighter restrictions on existing pit bulls some owners have in the city. The proposed ordinance says existing pit bulls present an unacceptable risk of harm and fear to residents.

Under the proposed ordinance existing pit bulls must have a fenced yard, you must be at least 18 year old to walk the dog, and it must have a muzzle on it's mouth.  Also, owners must have a $1, 000.00 dollar insurance policy.

Also, pit bulls must have their tags and shots.

 Violators could face a $500.00 fine or  30 days in jail.

The proposed ordinance will be read on April 14th. If it passes it would go into effect on April 28th.
