I urge everyone, not just the Flemingsburg City Council, to educate themselves about the reality of the American Pit Bull Terrier, along with its close relatives the American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier, and American Bulldog. An uneducated council member having such power in thier hands is similar to a 10 year old voting whether a county should be a "wet or dry" county. That child doesn't have any, or shouldn't have any, realistic knowledge regarding alcohol and yet it would have the power. Blantant disregard for education is the worse form of ignorance. I urge everyone, not just the Flemingsburg City Council Members, to become educated on the reality of these "bully" breeds before making a rash decision. Thank you.

pit bullls are no more dangerous than any other dog. It is the owner that dtermines what the animal becomes. I have two foster pits and my own dogs... Boxers and a Chihuahua. My ofster Pits get along with big and little, love kids and are loving and itelligent. Reconsider the ban. It is not the American way and it is not about the dog. Punish the owners and the deed, not the breed! Mesa, Arizona reader.
