Hinesville, Georgia: Residents take action!

According to a very brief news snip out of the Coastal Courier paper today, at last week’s city council meeting, a resident requested the council enact an ordinance to ban pit bulls.

I just spoke with the city manager’s office, and the resident is apparently experiencing “problems with pit bulls” in his neighborhood. The council advised the resident that they would look into the matter with the city attorney.

Please note that as of right now, this is not an issue currently before the city council. However, Hinesville residents need to reach out to their city leaders NOW and express their concerns regarding breed specific legislation, and offer their assistance and suggestions in crafting an ordinance that deals with the real problem of irresponsible dog ownership, rather than focusing on any particluar breed of dog. Work with your city officials in creating a better community for humans and animals, alike.
