Fort Thomas mulls rescinding pit bull ban that's been on books for 26 years

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 4, 2014 9:16 AM EDT

Officials in a northern Kentucky city that banned pit bulls nearly 30 years ago are looking at the possibility of allowing the dogs again.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports a Fort Thomas City Council committee has started researching the issue and heard on Monday from several residents in favor of the move.

Committee Chairman Tom Lampe said the panel plans a thorough analysis before any proposal that would change or eliminate the 1988 law. He said a public hearing would follow.

Lampe said he is open to the idea of focusing on owner responsibility instead of banning specific breeds of dogs.

Resident Tammy Nolan said the ban should be abolished. Nolan said she used to own a pit bull despite the ban and the dog was never aggressive.
