Montreal Bans Ownership of Pit Bulls


Montreal’s city council is set to vote Sept. 26 on a proposed bylaw that would ban the ownership of pit-bull-type dogs, including American Staffordshire terriers, Staffordshire bull terriers and American pit bull terriers, dogs of any mix of those breeds, and dogs with “similar physical characteristics” to those breeds, unless a request has been made by the end of this year to register the dog under a special ownership.


Those permits will only be granted to owners who can prove they do not have a criminal record, that their dog has been sterilized, has a microchip implanted under its skin and has had rabies shots.
