Thanks to Jodi for this update!
Back in mid-December, we learned that city officials in Vienna, West Virginia were considering revising their vicious dog ordinance to REMOVE the breed specific language from the law. At that time, the city council agreed to look over a revised ordinance at a later meeting, and the vicious dog ordinance is on the council’s agenda tomorrow, January 13, 2011.
Parks Director Norm Harris is assisting the council in making revisions to the ordinance, and Mr. Harris is opposed to breed specific legislation, believing that owners are responsible for the actions of their dogs. BSL has been in place in Vienna since 1984, and this would be a great win!
The council meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. at Vienna City Hall. If you are in the the Vienna area, please try to attend.
Jodi Preis, Bless the Bullys
