Lowell city council members have suggested enacting a breed-specific law. During the May 3 council meeting, members will hear about dangerous dogs from the public safety committee. This is likely to include discussion of a breed-specific law similar to the one in Boston. The public safety committee consists of three councilmembers, two of which are known to be strong and vocal supporters of BSL.
Residents and locals are encouraged to attend the council meeting and speak against breed-specific measures. BSL was rejected by council several years ago after considerable public outcry, but more recently, several councilmembers have voiced support for BSL.
Next city council meeting: May 3, 6:30 PM, City Council Chambers, City Hall, 2nd Floor, 375 Merrimack Street, Lowell, MA 01852.
