Omaha (KPTM) - A new committee is working in Omaha, looking into a possible city wide ban on pit bulls.



This follows a pit bull attack last week that involved four people, including a 15-month-old girl who is still recovering in the hospital.



Doctors say Charlotte Blevins faces years of surgery.



The city committee plans to look at what has been successful in other cities and will announce a plan of action in a couple of weeks.



The group is made up of Omaha's mayor, city attorney, three members of the city council, the Humane Society and Omaha police department.

Will Omaha ban pit bulls? Mayor Fahey, members of the Omaha City Council, police and the Nebraska Humane Society met Monday morning to consider what can be done to avoid another attack.



Last Wednesday, a 1-year-old girl had part of her scalp torn off by a pit bull near 13th and Pine. Charlotte Blevin¬Ęs mother, her mother's friend and her 1-year-old son were also injured while walking through the neighborhood.



Charlotte was scheduled to undergo more surgery this week and doctors say it will take several years for her to recover.



A proposal of some kind will be presented to the City Council within two weeks.
