CHICKASAW Al - CITY IS CONSIDERING A PIT BULL BAN - EVERYBODY ALWAYS SAYS THEY'RE SUCH A "SWEET DOG" UNTIL THEY EAT THE BABY

Sept 8, 2010 - The City of Chickasaw Al, located just north of Mobile, is considering banning pit bulls, or a vicious dog ordinance.  Resident Barry Lamm says he thinks pit bulls are dangerous.  He's had a couple of close calls with pit bulls on his daily walk.  He would support a ban.  Lamm says, "Everybody always says they are such a sweet dog until they eat the baby."

Chickasaw Councilman Adam Bourne said, "My preference would be to focus on Pit Bulls because that happens to be the breed that causes a lot of problems.  Bourne introduced the ordinance. HE SAID, " IT WASN'T AN ATTACK THAT PROMPTED HIM;  IT WAS THE IDEA ON ONE HAPPENING.  YOU CONSTANTLY SEE STORIES ACROSS THE STATE OF SAD SITUATIONS WHERE MAYBE A CHILD IS INJURED OR KILLED, AND I'D LIKE TO DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO PREVENT THAT," BOURNE SAID. However, Bourne says he will likely have to reach a compromise and change the language to ban "vicious dogs".   Other parts of the proposed ordinance include a ban on tethering dogs and leaving them unattended and making  people pick up after their dogs leave a mess.
