Pit Bulls Outlawed – Dog Attacks Cause Fear – Shea Law Group

Published on December 21st, 2010

Dog bites are a serious concern. Dogs bite close to five million people every year, including thousands in the Chicago area.

According to an article written in the Huffington Post, recently, a small dog is now suffering injuries from being attacked by a pit bull in Chicago.

Pit bulls are a dangerous breed. According to the article,

“Some cities ban pit bulls altogether. The entire province of Ontario, Canada, has outlawed bringing pit bulls in, and any pit bulls “grandfathered” in prior to 2005 must be sterilized. Cities throughout the U.S. banning pit bull breeds include Sioux City, Iowa; Miami-Dade County, Florida (unless the dog was registered prior to 1989, which would make the dog upwards of 20-years-old today); and Independence, Missouri. Other cities have registration laws, fines for not leashing or muzzling your pit bull, and restrictions against breeding.”
