BESSEMER, Pa. —
This week a 25-year-old ordinance in Bessemer was changed and is making it nearly impossible for anyone to own a pit bull.According to the ordinance, pit bulls “are considered dangerous and potentially hazardous to the community,” making people take out a $10,000 bond if they want to own one.One man in the town, Dan Gregg, said he is not against dogs, he has a black lab himself, but believes owners need to be responsible for whatever kind of dog they have.“I think they’re dangerous dogs,” said Gregg.Bessemer council said the hefty bond is a way to cover medical costs in case on an attack.However, Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz learned Friday that the whole issue may be a moot one since everyone she spoke with in Bessemer said they don’t know anyone who owns a pit bull in town.
