last week, the community of North Beach, MD repealed its ban on pit bulls. The new ordinance prohibits "dangerous animals" but does not name 'pit bulls' among them.
Apparently the Calver County Animal Control -- which provides services to North Beach (a community of about 1800 people) -- refused to enforce the town's ban on pit bulls though pledges to cooperate in enforcing the revised ordinance.
I've recently written about how organizations that provide animal welfare and control services to communities have the power to force change in these communities. This is further evidence that this is true and that breed bans are unnecessary and ineffective at creating public safety.
