SOUTHFIELD — More than a year after the Southfield City Council discussed the possibility of banning pit bulls in the city, the idea has been scrapped in favor of a few tweaks to the city’s animal ordinance to make enforcement more effective.

[…] “It really doesn’t matter as far as we’re concerned what the particular breed is — if it’s a dangerous animal, it’s a dangerous animal. Anyone that has a dangerous animal, we need to deal with that.”
