The town of Union, MS, has passed a ban on “the breed of dog commonly known as a pit bulldog” as well as “pit bulldog mixes,” according to the front page of the Newton County Appeal from Wednesday, September 21. The city may consider banning other breeds in addition to the vague and undefined “pit bulldog.”
Pit bulls banned in Union
by Jack Tennehill, Appeal Editor
Pit bulls have been outlawed in Union.
Meeting in a specially called meeting last Tuesday night, the aldermen voted unanimously to pass an ordinance that would ban “the breed of dog commonly known as the ‘Pit Bulldog.'”
The new measure would also ban what it terms as a “Pit Bulldog Mix.”
The ordinance which would go into effect in October, does not make any provision for the dogs to be penned or leashed. It is specific in calling for their removal from the city limits. [Remainder of article not available online.]
