Thomas County, Georgia May Consider Breed Ban for “Pit Bulls”
From WALB News:
“Last week in Thomasville 5-year-old Cheyenne Peppers was killed when three family pit bulls mauled her to death in her own back yard.
‘What value do we put on the human life? Does my right to own a dog go past the right of a person to survive and have a life?’ said Sheriff Carlton Powell.
Thomas county Sheriff Carlton Powell says absolutely not. And in this morning’s County Commission meeting he took a stand.
‘I’ve asked for them to ban pit bulls as a breed in this county,’ he said.
The father of Cheyenne Peppers, the child killed last week, spoke in this morning’s meeting too. Expressing grief over his loss and backing the Sheriff in banning the dogs that took his daughters life.”
