The West Fork City Council wanted to hear what residents had to say and they definitely heard some very strong opinions.
"As long as you don't breed them to fight or nothing like that, there's nothing wrong with a pit," said Michael Brown.
West Fork Mayor Frances Hime decided it was time to talk about the breed after a significant number of pit bull attacks on both people and animals.
"Given that number of incidents, is why we decided we would address it...We don't really understand why we've had this sudden influx of so many of the breed type running loose in the city, why they're suddenly showing up in our town."
Not a single resident was in favor of the breed-specific ban at Tuesday night's meeting.
Instead, they want to see harsher punishments for irresponsible owners.
"They just need to start ticketing people and enforcing the fines on any dog at large, whether it's a yorkie or a pit bull, to me it makes no difference,' said Jacqueline Dunn.
While some believe pit bulls have gained a bad reputation, Mayor Hime is not one to judge.
"We understand that not all pit bulls are that way."
City officials said they will work with residents and hopefully come up with a compromise that makes all dog owners happy.
"I just want to be able to walk my dogs in my neighborhood and not have any other dog running up to them. I think that's a pretty basic right that all of us want, and I don't think it's too much to ask...As long as you keep your dog behind a fence or on a leash away from me and my dogs, that's really all I care about," said Dunn.
This ban would include any pit bull breed, so that means American Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Bull Terriers and American Bull Dogs
Mayor Hime said there is already a vicious animal ordinance in West Fork, but after the recent pit bull attacks, the city hopes additional regulations will keep people safe.
