North Beach, MD: Town council repeals breed ban

Ordinance Amended

The council voted unanimously to amend a town ordinance regarding dangerous dogs. The ordinance had previously banned pit bulls in North Beach. The revised measure prohibits “dangerous animals.”

The change is more in line with Calvert County’s Animal Control Ordinance, which includes statutes regarding ownership of “dangerous animals.” North Beach is served by the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, which includes an Animal Control unit. While county officials refused to enforce the town’s ban on pit bulls, North Beach Town Attorney John Shay said he has been assured by Calvert’s County Attorney John Norris that sheriff’s department employees “will cooperate” in the enforcement of North Beach’s revised ordinance.
