TAYLORSVILLE — There will be no ban on pit bulls in Taylorsville. City officials decided not to develop an ordinance to outlaw pit bull breeds. Instead, Taylorsville will try to strengthen its existing vicious animal ordinances.
Several weeks ago a resident spoke at a council meeting, asking city council members to ban pit bulls. After considering the issue, civic leaders stated they were not interested in breed-specific restrictions, but tightening their current vicious animal ordinance would be a suitable option.
“Enforcing a breed-specific ordinance becomes problematic,” said council chair Jerry Rechtenbach. “Currently there is no Legislation pending on this issue.”
Taylorsville mayor Russ Wall said he believed that pet owners should held responsible.
“I support stronger vicious animal ordinances that send a clear message to pet owners,” Wall said. “In Taylorsville, we will not tolerate vicious animals.”
