Judge rules against pit bull kennel

    NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - A Cleveland County judge has ruled against the operator of a pit bull kennel in a case that tests a new state law banning dog kennels within 2,500 feet of a school or day care in Oklahoma City or Tulsa.
    District Judge Tom Lucas issued a temporary injunction today against kennel owner Kenneth Gonzales because his kennel is located within 2,000 feet of the Villa Teresa Moore School. Gonzales also didn't have a kennel license when the law went into effect in June.
    Lucas stayed the injunction for 30 days to allow Gonzales time to find somewhere else to house his 25 American pit bull and American Staffordshire terriers, sometimes commonly referred to as pit bulls.
    The judge says his order would be stayed indefinitely if Gonzales files an appeal with the state Supreme Court.

    2,500 ft away from schools and daycares?...sounds like they are pedophiles!

    I'd move exactly 2500.5 feet away. And sit outside on my lawn chair in short shorts, a bikini top, and 6.5" spiked heels every single day.

    Since Kenny posted on a board just a short time ago, I think he's going to keep fighting this ruling.

    There's a law like that in NE Louisiana. You can't build a bar within a certain distance of a church. When I was living there, rumors of a Hooters opening started to circulate, and one of the big Baptist churches there started construction right away on the next lot in order to run the dreaded Hooters out of town. Turned out to be a Cracker Barrel. They never did finish building that new church :D

    Yeah, that sounds like something they'd do. LOL! The irony is, this kennel has been there for a few years now, and Kenny's been trying to get it licensed since 2006. (He got approved, and then got denied some permit for building construction or something technical like that. Nothing to do with the dogs at all.) They just passed the law about 2500 feet this year.

    Do you know if the new law include a grandfather clause?

    Certainly doesn't seem like it, at least not in Kenny's case. I haven't heard of any other kennels being affected by it, though, so I'm not sure. The law was proposed by people just to get at this particular kennel.

    I'm from Norman, grew up there and Norman is a pretty dirty place as far as the way things get done.

    And now they lay claim to Wesselhoft. I'm seeing a pattern here. I was on their message board for a while, and those folks were downright mean.

    This dude built a truck stop across the street from me. Dude turns out to be a real crackhead. We all heard that he was planing to build a liquor store next to his truck stop. I got on the internet and got ordained by I think it was The Church of Life. Went through the process of forming a non profit and waited for him to begin construction. Half way through construction I call a lawyer and made him move his store. Construction stopped and he sold the truckstop. End of problem with this dude. My church had accomplished it's goal and has gone the way of the liquor store. I really don't care about liquor stores I just didn't like the dude that was going to build it.
