Jan 03, 1988 Rockford looking at Pit Bull Ban Proposals

Rockford - Proposals for an ordinance that would prohibit or restrict pit bulls within city limits were ordered Tuesday by the City Council Codes and Regulations.

Ald. Patrick Curran, R-2nd, who sat in on the meeting, said punishing a pit bull after an attack is not enough.

"Apparently, there is an inordinate percentage of pit bulldog attacks without provocation -- sooner or later, someone's going to get it." he said.
