Pit Bulls Win The Popular Vote

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

In Denver, citizens have voted to repeal a ban on owning pit bulls for the first time in 30 years.

Pit bulls get a wrap for being aggressive dogs and were banned in Denver in 1986 after 20 people had been attacked. Opponents of this bill said that many dogs are unlicensed in Denver and that breed-specific bans do not work. Voters agreed with this logic and passed the ballot measure with almost 65% approval, allowing pet owners to choose a pit bull as long as they are microchipped and compliant with Animal Protection requirements.
