City officials in Manton, Michigan are considering drafting an ordinance that would prohibit city residents from owning or purchasing a pit bull.
At last night’s city council meeting, a resident alleged a neighbor’s pit bull attacked his dog, and he requested that the city consider taking action against the “aggressive breed”. The Mayor indicated that the city would investigate ordinances in other municipalities to see “what is out there, how they are worded and whether it is a flat out ban or whether it is a way of containing them.”
A public meeting will be held before any final decisions are made.
Please send your POLITE, RESPECTFUL and INFORMATIVE letters opposing breed specific legislation to the Manton city officials via the address and/or fax number below. Please offer viable suggestions and alternatives for the officials to consider, as well.
