Pit Bull owners in Holton fighting pet ordinance


Pit Bull owners in the city of Holton are scrambling to find a way to keep their dogs.

The well-known breed of dog has been banned in the City of Holton since 1985.
Now, Holton City officials are tightening the enforcement of this city ordinance and giving dog owners 2 weeks to get rid of their Pit Bulls.
Garden City already has the ban, while El Dorado is reviewing the same ordinance.

Holton officials say, since the announcement many have expressed frustration with the ordinance.

“They’re breaking the law right now and that’s the best thing I can say at this point. If you don’t like it than try to get it changed and they have to come to City Hall to do that. I’m about listening to what the people want but at this point in time it looks like it’s just a handful of people who are complaining.” Said City Council Member, Dan Brenner.

The City Council has a meeting on May 19th which will allow people to voice their opinions and ideas about this issue.
