Caledonia, MN: Council plans to ban “pit bulls” and “half breeds”

**Minnesota state law prohibits municipalities from passing BSL.**

Caledonia, MN, council intends to ban “pit bulls and half-breeds” after an incident in which a dog that was already declared dangerous attacked and killed another dog. Animal control supports the breed ban.

Council intends to discuss and possibly approve the ordinance during the June 11 council meeting. Please take the time to notify city officials that their proposal is not legal per state law.

COUNCIL LOOKING TO BAN ANY NEW PIT BULLS WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS

06 JUNE 2012
By Charlie Warner, Argus Editor

[…] It was pointed out that pit bulls currently in Caledonia will be grandfathered in. But, like all dogs, they must be licensed, which will help Gavin and the local police department keep better track of them. But no new pit bulls or half-breeds will be allowed within the city limits.

The topic will be revisited at the June 11 council meeting and the new ordinance possibly approved.
