Hobart, IN: City council not interested in BSL

Although a resident requested a “pit bull”-specific ban or restrictions, Hobart city council says it’s not interested in BSL. The proposed ordinance changes will be discussed next in an ordinance committee meeting on Aug 1.

HOBART | Potential new city regulations regarding vicious animals would put responsibility on pet owners, but it wouldn’t single out specific breeds.

[… City Attorney Anthony] DeBonis said breed-specific legislation doesn’t work. He said any dog breed can be trained to be a vicious pet.

Other city leaders agreed that singling out a specific breed wouldn’t be effective. […]

The matter will be discussed again during an Aug. 1 Ordinance Committee meeting.
