    Sterling Heights has had two pit bull issues in the last few weeks. We need to head this off before it gets out of control. Both times the owners admitted to being irresponsible. Please, if you live near Sterling Heights, the meeting is tomorrow at 7:30pm.

    We need to be there quietly, professionally and politely.


    The Sterling Heights City Council will hold a regular council meeting Tuesday, June 15, 2010 in the City Hall Council Chambers. City Hall is located at 40555 Utica Road.

    Those links both point to the same article.

    What kind of idiot keeps 4 pitbulls together in a position to possibly escape? Pack mentality pushed by strong prey drives and panicking people rarely ends well...

    Sorry. It apparently didn't copy and paste. A woman was outside with her two cocker spaniels and had an incident with the two neighbor dogs. A lot of damage was done and one dog was shot and then euthanized later.

    I just knew Michigan couldn't stay quiet for long. :(

    one of the many reasons why most of us are saying to euth all unstable "pitbull" dogs, yet it goes in one ear and out the other or people are blowing up and getting upset when we say PTS/cull/euth/dirt nap, etc :( :'(

    Update from the meeting:

    They are looking at possible amendments to their ordinance, but made no mention of it being breed specific. I don't doubt they're tinkering with the idea - especially after a gentleman got up and talked about wanting a total ban - no grandfather clause - and spoke of the 'children' who could get harmed. The typical post-attack knee jerk reactions.

    I hope we beat this one.

    Ugh. It's what I figured. I tried to get people I know in that area with pit bulls to go, but no luck (I don't think they would have made a good impression anyway).

    Meeting

    There is a "workshop" planned September 29th at 7pm. Sign up is available on the city webpage, for residents to come in and voice opinions either way. Hopefully facts will be stated and the city will hold off on anything breed specific. I have invited numerous people to attend, but I am concerned they want to complain after the fact when they could have helped. My name is Karen by the way :) for anyone reading and I am in love with my little red Lucie
