West Allis, WI: Vicious Dogs Banned?

Considering what I’ve written about in the past I don’t know how I CAN’T write about the saga of the Pit Bull ban in West Allis. 

As you’ve probably read on the AP Wire the City President exercised his first veto on a proposal to ban Pit Bulls in West Allis (it banned any new pit bulls but allowed current Pit Bulls to stay).  The West Allis Common Council voted for the ban on December 2nd.  The ban would have been the first of its kind in the Milwaukee area.

Because of the veto the Common Council is considering other options:

The Common Council is considering a new ordinance to clamp down on dogs in the city considered vicious

A vote is supposed to occur very soon.  I’ll keep you updated on anything that I see in the news.
