Bradford, Pennsylvania Removes “Pit Bulls” from Its “Dangerous” List

After a short city council meeting on Tuesday, January 28, 2014, the Bradford, Pennsylvania City Council passed a measure removing so-called “pit bull” dogs from its list of “dangerous” animals.  

According to City Solicitor Mark Hollenbeck,

. . . the city had been questioned about the legality of the listing of pit bulls as dangerous and he and Bradford City police chief Chris Lucco looked into the matter.

Hollenbeck said they discovered the law discriminating against the breed was not valid and they wanted it ‘off the books.’

Good going.   Now, if only the midwesterners could talk some sense into their political counterparts on the west coast (particularly in Medford, Oregon and Pasadena, California).
