Thumbs up Aurora, Colorado Allows Pit Bull Service Dogs Back Into City



The Aurora, Colorado City Council voted Monday to allow Pit Bulls back into the city on a very limited basis.

The Council voted 6-3 to allow disabled residents to use the dogs as service animals. The Council also reduced the number of banned dog breeds from 10 to 3.

Under pressure from residents who were angry about Pit Bull attacks, Aurora, Colorado banned Pit Bulls in 2006.

But a federal change to the Americans with Disabilities Act now forbids communities from banning any type of service dog. Both Denver, Colorado and Aurora, Colorado have been sued over their Pit Bull bans.

Three Pit Bull breeds, the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier, will continue to be outlawed in Aurora, Colorado except for disabled residents who meet the city’s licensing requirements.

At Monday evening’s City Council meeting, a handful of residents weighed in on the proposed ordinance. Several said the dangers of Pit Bulls have never been proven and that the ban should be tossed out entirely.

Councilman Bob Fitzgerald, who has clashed with Pit Bull advocates in the past and voted against the ordinance, said the new A.D.A. mandate effectively junks the Pit Bull ban.

He questioned whether Pit Bull owners would take advantage of the looser restrictions by bringing dogs into the city to which they’re not entitled.

That is great, but I wonder how many people will fake a disability to keep their dogs?

Funny thing is.. it's against the law to ASK someone to prove they are disabled. And the ADA does not require service dogs to have their credentials in plain sight, either.
