From the Log Cabin Democrat:

“The Mayflower Police department, Animal Control section, will have a public meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Mayflower City Hall to explain and define the Mayflower Pit Bull Ordinance for all residents in the Mayflower city limits.

There will be a question and answer time allowed for all owners of any AKC registered Pit Bills or any animal who may have been bred with a pit bull breed or any lineage from a pit bull. All these animals must be registered with the city by Aug. 1.

Any citizens of Mayflower interested in this discussion, or the ramifications of the ordinance, are invited to attend.

For any questions about this meeting or the ordinance, call the Mayflower Animal Control office at 470-1000. Hours are 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.”

Please contact the Mayflower City Council and politely inform them that breed-specific legislation in any form is ineffective and unenforceable.

    That’s pretty funny, actually. The town is named after the ship that carried people escaping persecution to the New World.

  2. Oh you noticed that too?
