FORT THOMAS, Ky. (Derek Drake) -- Pit bulls have been banned in the city of Ft. Thomas for nearly three decades, but that could soon come to an end. Ft. Thomas city council's public safety committee is set to meet on June 2, 2014 to discuss changing the city's "dangerous animal" and pit bull dog bans. At a council meeting in April about 40 people came forward and asked that the ban on pit bulls be repealed. Many of those pushing for the change want the breed specification in the law to change. Currently pit bulls are the only breed that is banned in the city. The city's law places the ban on any dog registered that "has predominant physical characteristics which are those of either the American Staffordshire Terrier or the Staffordshire Bull Terrier." Many cities and towns around the U.S. have similar laws that refer to pit bulls as "dangerous breeds," but a new push to remove "breed specific" legislation is on the rise. Let us know what you think. Do you think there are "dangerous breeds" of dogs, or just dangerous owners? Weigh in on the conversation and get connected on our Facebook page.
