City of Etowah proposes banning pit bulls within city limits

The city of Etowah in McMinn County has proposed making it illegal to own any breed of pit bull, including mixed-breeds, within the city limits.

An Etowah City Ordinance up for a vote by the city commission in the coming weeks claims the dogs are "dangerous to humans and other animals" and have "a tendency to attack" those who aren't provoked.
