POLL: Should Malden Muzzle its Pit Bulls?
Councilor Neil Kinnon has proposed the measure for years, and the council will hear a discussion about it tonight during their 7 p.m. meeting.
Note: If you can't make the meeting, remember you can always watch it live on Malden Patch.
Tonight at 7 p.m., the Malden City Council will reconsider a discussion tabled last week exploring the possibility of requiring pit bulls and pit bull mixes to be muzzled on public property.
A number of animal groups, such as the MSPCA, say the measure is cruel, but the sponsor, Councilor Neil Kinnon, points to a number of attacks in the city he said could've been prevented with such an ordinance.
What do you think, readers? Are you a pit bull owner or lover? A victim of a dog attack?
