Pit Bull Ban Goes to Vote Monday

Posted: Sep 12, 2008 06:20 PM EDT

Monday marks decision day for Sioux City's proposed Pit Bull ban.

Right now there's 78 registered Pit Bulls in Sioux City which makes up 3 percent of all the city's licensed dogs. But since October, Pit Bulls have been involved in about 47 percent of vicious dog hearings in the metro area.

Some city leaders say the ban is all about maintaining a safe and healthy city.

"My history of hearing Pit Bull attacks and the evidence is there, I believe. Enough to convince me," says Mayor Mike Hobart.

Hobart is the proud owner of three dogs but despite his care for canines, Hobart is a hundred percent behind a city-wide Pit Bull ban.

"I think we're probably going to go ahead and pass the ban, if I can read the council with any degree of accuracy," says Hobart.

If passed here's what would happen:

It would be illegal for Sioux City residents to buy or adopt a new Pit Bull.

If you currently own a Pit Bull in the City, you will be allowed to keep it until it passes away but you'll have to continuously register and license the dog. If you don't, your Pit Bull will be impounded and most likely it'll be put to sleep. It's an issue that's putting Sioux City's Animal Control in a bit of a panic since the center already complains of cramped quarters.

"It's putting stress on an already stressed building and it's going to be a fight for room," says Cindy Rarrat, Animal Control Director.

A fight for room and additional resources.

"We deal with dogs and cats running loose, wild-life and all different sorts of problems that don't have anything to do with just the Pit Bull situation," says Rarrat.

City Council meets at 4p.m. Monday. Those with concerns or comments on the subject will be allowed to speak before the council votes on the ban.
