TRUSSVILLE, AL (WBRC) – The city of Trussville is looking at a proposed amendment ordinance to ban pitt bulls from the city. […]

The proposed ordinance says it would be unlawful to have a pit bull in Trussville. Current owners will be grandfathered in. Their dogs must be on a leash, secured or locked in a pen, and there should be a sign on their property saying “Beware of Dog.” […]

The ordinance could be up for a vote in two weeks. Mayor Melton says it could be carried over to January.

  1. Blame the owners not the dogs.. Such law was recently passed in here in Melbourne. I do support laws that will provide a solution not dicrimnating against any breeds.
