Pit bull ban discussed at Allen Park meeting

By ZLATI MEYER • FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER • August 6, 2008



ALLEN PARK -- City officials, considering outlawing pit bulls, reviewed Melvindale's similar ordinance and heard form people on both sides of the issue Tuesday night.

Approximately two dozen residents and pit bull owners from other municipalties attended the city council's Legal Affairs Commmittee meeting that lasted almost an hour and a half, city officials said. Among those who addressed the group were city councilwoman Beverly Kelley whose two shih tzus were attacked last month, sparking interest in the possible ban.



On July 12, two pit bulls that had been running loose in the street attacked Boss and Cujo, killing the latter and seriously injuring the former, according to Allen Park police. The owner of the pit bulls, Susan Jaeger, lives in Lincoln Park.



Allen Park may opt to restrict loose dogs in general, rather than pit bulls -- and pit bull mixes -- in particular, Kelley said Wednesday night
