There is significant discrimination against pit bulls in this world. They are banned in so many places and are even banned in entire cities.
For the last 30 years, Denver, Colorado, had just such a ban against them, but they have finally gone against it.
On Monday, they have voted to take down this ban, and in the process ending the city’s 30-year discriminatory stand against the breed.
The Denver city council voted 7-4 in favor of a new code that allows pit bulls in the city, and the new bill will take effect in 90 days if approved by the city’s mayor, Michael Hancock.
Here are a few highlights of the legislation updates:
- Owners must register their dog with Denver Animal Protection and apply for a “breed-restricted license.”
- Owners need to provide proof of microchipping, neutering/spaying, and vaccination.
- A maximum of 2 Pit Bulls allowed per household.
- Required notification within 8 hours if the dog escapes or bites.
