Springdale Alderman Wants Pit Bull Ban


Sheila Elkins says Saturday's pit bull attack in her neighborhood was unfortunate but not unexpected.

"We've seen it chasing children, we've seen it in our backyards to where we couldn't come out of our homes and called animal control to come take care of the problems," Sheila said.

Police say the dog attacked Kathryn Urban and her two sons as they played in their front yard. Officers shot and killed the dog because, according to their report, it lunged at one of them.

Springdale Alderman, Mike Overton says he'd like to see pit bulls banned inside city limits.

"An attack like this one is just a good illustration of the fact that there is a real problem with certain breeds of dogs. I understand it might not necessarily be the animal's fault.
You can always say it's the owner, but the fact is there are some breeds that are just vicious," Overton said.

Overton, a dog owner himself, initiated a pit bull ban discussion last year and says he plans on bringing it back up at next weeks ordinance committee meeting.

"I'm sure we'll hear the same stories. I don't know how much support the council will give to addressing the issue," he said.

Although the attack shook her up, Sheila says she's not sure she'd support a dog breed ban.

"I don't think that's quite fair, but there again we do have a responsibility to take care of our children," she said.

Officials in Springdale, Arkansas decide against a pit bull ordinance, and add language to their proposal making it clear dogs will not be declared dangerous because of their breed.
