CALERA, SHELBY CO AL - A PIT BULL NAMED BELLA LANDS OWNER IN COURT

Aug 4 2010 - A 5 yr old  PIT BULL  named Bella was running loose and ran into a neighbor's garage and killed their pet cat right in front of them. She attacked the 2nd time when she got loose and charged at residents walking their dogs on a leash and bit one of them.  Bella's owner, Melanie Smith, is going to court and says she will reimburse  her neighbor's vet bills and for the cat that was killed and all fines.  But she says, "Bella is such a  "SWEET DOG".  I just don't want them to put her down."  She has sent Bella to stay with relatives in Louisiana.  Mayor Jon Graham is against a breed specific ordinance, but concerned residents want something done.  They did find out that Police Chief Sean Lemley has been working behind the scenes  for months to create a strong animal control ordinance enforced by a dedicated animal control officer.
