    The city of Beaver Dam is expected to toughen its dangerous animals ordinance in the coming weeks. But such an action will fall well short of a complete ban on specific breeds such as pit bulls — a measure some citizens have called for. Assistant city attorney Dave Schacht put a halt to any talk of a breed-specific ban during Monday's parks and recreation meeting. He said that municipalities are hard-pressed to present admissible evidence that one breed should be completely outlawed. Pointing to a breed-specific ban in Juneau, Schacht said that he didn't think the city would win any court cases challenging it. Instead, Schacht suggested amending the city's current dangerous animals ordinance to include dogs that bite. After indicating that any breed of dog could potentially be dangerous, alderpersons shared their various encounters with dogs, including one clash with a poodle. "If I get bit, I don't care what breed it is," chairperson Glen Link said. According to Schacht, city humane officer Lisa Jones has said that Labrador retrievers are actually responsible for more bites than pit bulls. City attorneys are expected to draft a new ordinance in the coming weeks for presentation to the committee. http://www.wiscnews .com/bdc/ news/135692

    I also like it.. in St. Paul, MN they passed a law where instead of banning breeds that they hold the owner responsible where if they have had two dogs taken away from them because they where viscous they are not allowed to get a dog license anymore. More cities need to have this type of law instead of just banning breeds.
