Heads up Kalamazoo, MI

While nothing has been proposed at this time, those in the Kalamazoo area should definitely keep an eye on this one. Residents are encouraged to start reaching out to public officials NOW with suggestions and alternatives before anything has the chance to be proposed.

Should Pit Bulls Be Outlawed
Posted Wednesday February 23, 2011

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The tragic death of a newborn mauled by a pit bull in Kalamazoo over the weekend has some city officials asking the question, should Kalamazoo follow other cities like Denver and outlaw pit bulls?

Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety Chief Jeff Hadley says there is, at the moment, no such proposal. And Joanna Powell with Animal Rescue says the breed isn't inherently dangerous.

Hadley, though, says it may be worth discussing. He also says that while not all pit bulls are violent, the breed does tend to be the most problematic for law enforcement officers.
