Yucaipa, CA to Consider Mandatory Spay/Neuter Ordinance for “Pit Bulls”
According to the San Jose Mercury News,
The Yucaipa City Council has given initial approval to a proposed ordinance requiring the spaying or neutering of pit bulls.
The City Council approved the ordinance’s first reading on a 4-1 vote Monday night.
If approved during a second and final reading, Yucaipa residents would have 30 days to spay or neuter their pit bulls over 4 months old or face a $100 fine.

Please contact the Yucaipa Mayor and City Council and politely inform them that “pit bull” is not a breed.Â Please also inform them that breed-specific legislation (BSL) in any form has been proven to be unenforceable and ineffective and that mandatory spay/neuter laws are unconstitutional for the same reason that breed-specific legislation is unconstitutional .
