Ky. city considers ban on pit bulls

Posted: Updated:

FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. (AP) -- Officials in a northeastern Kentucky city are considering a ban on pit bulls.

Flemingsburg Mayor Marty Voiers told The Ledger Independent that officials have had several complaints about the dogs, including people who have been attacked and chased.

Voiers said the city's current ordinance allows the animals, but requires that they be registered.

The City Council took a unanimous vote on Monday to ban the breed from the city. A second vote is needed before the change would take effect.

The council meets again on June 10. Voiers said if the ban is approved again at that meeting, it will begin 30 days later.
