Omaha, NE - Mayor Mike Fahey has named a committee to study dangerous dog laws and make a recommendation for the City of Omaha. The committee will make a proposal within two weeks. The Mayor's action follows 4 pit bull attacks in the last 3 months. The most violent attack involved two toddlers and their mothers last week. The others include Officer Shawn Leclair, Cynthia Edward and Hope Hewitt.
Mayor Mike Fahey said the new committee includes members of the police department, city council, law department and the Nebraska Humane Society.

It's so important that this city
be able to make up its decision without all the out of town e-mails. Breed bans have been successful you just have to enforce them--Council Bluffs Iowa is a good example also Denver Co.
San Francisco and many more towns.
Some people say bans are not fair because there are good pit bulls--well yes but is it fair that little toddlers are mauled by bad ones? There are bad pit bulls and the word is "genetic traits." Pit bulls are unpredictable. They are bred that way for the pit. Their Bite is terrible
and the determination that makes this dog good at some tasks also makes it a killing machine biting.Leaders spay and neuter this dog out--people count for more than this dog.

We'll the ASPCA has deployed Ledy Van Kavage to "Educate" the city council.
Let's hope the city council has the spine to tell the Pit-Carpet Bagger "We Don't Believe You".
Constituents need to hold the City Council accountable for not preventing future attacks.
