Fulton, MO: Whispers of BSL

During a city council meeting, council discussed possible revisions to Fulton’s animal control ordinance. A resident (who, ironically, owns a dog described by the news as a “pit bull mix”) suggested a ban on pit bulls, but the councilmembers don’t seem too interested in BSL. They may assemble a committee to evaluate their current ordinances and suggest changes.

Please offer polite, constructive correspondence and sample breed-neutral ordinances to guide the council toward reasonable, breed-neutral revisions.
