Norman, OK - A Cleveland County judge has ruled against the operator of a pit bull kennel in a case that tests a new state law banning dog kennels within 2,500 feet of a school or day care in Oklahoma City or Tulsa. District Judge Tom Lucas issued a temporary injunction today against kennel owner Kenneth Gonzales because his kennel is located within 2,000 feet of the Villa Teresa Moore School and his kennel was not licensed when the law went into effect in June.
Lucas stayed the injunction for 30 days to allow Gonzales time to find somewhere else to house pit bulls. The judge says his order would be stayed indefinitely if Gonzales files an appeal with the state Supreme Court.

Here's a great reason why a kennel and pit bull puppies should not be anywhere near kids.
It occurs to me that families have had dogs and bred dogs since the beginning of time. Yet pit bull owners continually stress kids and dogs don't mix. You just don't hear all these horror stories with other breeds.

The pit nutter forums are rallying around this wealthy tax evading loser.
What a nice guy. He apparently owns a casino and a another business and STILL he doesn't pay taxes OR run a kennel legally. I bet his is negligent in his other businesses as well.
