Monterey, Tennessee Considers BSL

9/10/07 Update: Per Councilman Sheckler it is believed that the breed-specific portion of the ordinance is now off the table.  

From the Herald-Citizen:

“The Town of Monterey could soon be joining an ever-growing list of cities considering a ban on pit bulls.

Although the town is a long way from enforcing such a ban, the topic was brought up during Monday night’s regular board meeting by alderman David Delk.

…MTAS Municipal Management Consultant Warren Nevad said in an e-mail that the key to a pit bull ordinance is a clear definition of dog breed and type.”

If Animal Control cannot keep up with the number of free-roaming dogs now which are the result of irresponsible owners, how will they enforce a breed ban???
