Jun 26, 2009 Highland Park, Elgin consider restrictions on pit bulls

Two suburbs are considering restrictions on pit bulls after a 14-year-old girl was attacked by one, and a 6-pound Chihuahua was killed by two others.
Longtime Elgin resident Pat DeMoss said she was attacked by a pit bull in 1999 near Gifford Elementary School and nearly lost her leg.
"If you stick your head in the sand on this, it is going to come back to bite you, and I don't mean that as a pun," she told council members.
