Garfield City Council tables pit bull ordinance
The Garfield City Council tabled an ordinance yesterday that targeted pit bulls. Several attacks prompted consideration of the ordinance, which required owners to muzzle their dogs, keep them on a short leash and take out $50,000 worth of liability insurance.
Some dog owners in the town, which happens to shares its name with a famous cat, said the ordinance was discriminatory against pit bulls that never attacked anyone.
Garfield's city manager says it was tabled due to public outcry about the ordinance.
