South Milwaukee Reverses Pit Bull Ban

July 7, 2017

South Milwaukee has reversed its ban on pit bulls. 

The ban has been in place in South Milwaukee for nearly thirty years. Mayor Erik Brooks said in a blog post tht by reversing the ban, South Milwaukee is "treating all dogs equally under our tough, but fair, vicious dog ordinance".

The repeal is being applauded by the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC). They said that the ordinance will help reinforce the fact that "individual dogs and their owners need to be held responsible for injuries and damages for dog bites".
