PORTERDALE — Describing pit bulldogs as a “stick of dynamite with a short fuse that could blow up at any time,” Councilman Mike Harper asked his fellow council members Monday night to consider banning pit bulls in Porterdale.[…]

City Attorney Tim Chambers said the town may be able to regulate certain breeds, ban certain people from owning certain breeds or ban breeds from certain locations.

The council agreed unanimously to research whether certain breeds can be banned in the town and moved the discussion to a future work session.
