Pit Bull Ban?

When a young Eau Claire girl was attacked last month by a Pit Bull, city officials began looking into holding a public discussion about Pit Bull safety.


Now after last week's attack one City Council Member is looking into banning them from Eau Claire.


City Council member Dallas Neville says he has never received so many phone calls about an issue and he says all the people who contacted him, except one, were in favor of a ban.


Neville says the main reason for moving forward with this ordinance is because he says no one has been able to give a reason as to why the Pit Bulls attacked in the first place.


Neville says the City Attorney will draft the ordinance this week and he hopes to take the proposal to the City Council within the month.
