Apr 04, 2010 Reaction to the statewide ban on BSL in Streator, IL: This is Asinine

Pit bulls no longer singled out by Streator ordinance

Streator — The old ordinance was drawn up several years ago to combat reports of the breed attacking people. State law now prohibits breed-specific ordinances, City Attorney Steve Myers told the council.
The new ordinance allows the city to take action against any vicious dog, as long as there are several complaints and they are documented, Myers told the council.
“This is asinine,” council member Bob “Willy” Williamson told the council. He said he knew of the mail not being delivered because of a vicious dog being tied outside.
