"South Milwaukee no longer bans pit bulls. Instead, we are treating all dogs equally under our tough, but fair, vicious dog ordinance.
The City Council voted to remove the pit bull ban, in place since the 1990s, last week. I support the change, and the rationale for making the decision."
He later goes on to say: "A vicious dog is a vicious dog. The revised ordinance keeps our community safe, and doesn’t discriminate."
We would like to thank Mayor Brooks for his common sense and leadership on this issue. You can read the entirety of his blog by clicking here.
We would also like to note that several members of our organization attended a council meeting and spoke with Mayor Brooks many years ago when he was still an Alderman. At that time, there wasn't enough support on council for a repeal, but we are very pleased that he remained dedicated to changing the ordinance when he became mayor.
South Milwaukee is once again a safe and humane community for ALL dogs and dog lovers.
