Bonner Springs, Kansas Task Force Still Looking at Repealing BSL
As we reported in a mid-July post, Bonner Springs, Kansas, has formed a task force to look into changing their breed-specific law (BSL) after resident Debi Baker, who did not know she owned a banned breed, was given a mere 15 days to remove her Staffordshire Bull Terrier “Titan” from the city. Currently, a task force formed by the Bonner Springs City Council is looking into the possibility of passing a dangerous dog ordinance in lieu of their “pit bull” ban.
Councilman Jack Knight, who spearheaded the move away from BSL, stated that he, “believes some pit bulls are the victims of bad press, and that the dog in question [“Titan”] is not a dangerous animal.”
Sadly, while the task force continues to mull the city’s options, Titan languishes in an animal shelter in Lawrence unable to understand why he cannot be with his family.
