Tupelo, MS: Council declines to vote on BSL

Tupelo, MS, already has BSL for “pit bull” owners. Over the last six months, they’ve considered various changes to their dog law, all of which included BSL. Council was set to vote on the proposal on May 1, but ultimately did not.

This leaves in place all of Tupelo’s current animal ordinances—which INCLUDES current BSL for “pit bulls.” You can read Tupelo’s current animal ordinances here.

We do not know when or if the council will bring the ordinance revisions back up for consideration. We would appreciate the help of locals to keep an eye on this issue.
