San Francisco Passes Law Targeting Pit Bull Dogs

Following in the footsteps of Denver's City Council, yesterday San Francisco's Board of Supervisors passed a law targeting pit bull dogs.  The new ordinance is designed a reaction to another vicious dog bite attack  where a 12-year-old boy was mauled to death.  The ordinance takes effect January 1, 2006, and requires owners to spay or neuter the breed, and get breeding permits from the city.
