Pit bull update tonight
by Adam torres
At tonight's Independence City Council study session, the council will hear a staff report regarding pit bulls.
The city has 395 registered pit bulls, according to Independence Animal Shelter manager Aimee Wells.
Pit bulls are banned in the city, but owners who had them before Oct. 21, could keep their animals as long as they registered them with the city. Wells said the city initially registered more than 400 pit bulls, but since then a few have left the city.
Tonight's meeting begins at 6 in the council chambers at City Hall, 111 E. Maple St.
