Yakima Upholds Pit Bull Ban; Asks for More Information

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA. -- Yakima City Council decided Tuesday to maintain the city's ban on Pit Bulls. With a 6 to 1 vote, council members agreed to keep the ban which has been in place since the late 80's.

Recent study sessions and public meetings about the ban have been emotional with strong arguments for both sides. The council did ask city officials to gather information on how alternative Pit Bull ordinances have worked in other cities.
