Council to vote on pit-bull ordinance

Critics say vicious dog law already on books is enough

LOWELL […] Following a public hearing Tuesday, the council is expected to vote on an ordinance mirroring a Boston law requiring pit bulls be leashed and muzzled when off their owner’s property. Haverhill has an ordinance that requires pit bulls be muzzled.[…]

The pit bull ordinance would require owners to register and license and spay or neuter dogs. Owners would have to leash and muzzle pit bulls when off their property. The ordinance would restrict owners to two pit bulls per household, with the exception of a litter of puppies and would require owners to post signs saying, “Beware of Pit Bull.”
