BLOOMER, Wis. (AP) — The city of Bloomer has amended its ordinance which bans pit bulls.
The City Council Wednesday night voted to allow pit bulls that are obtained through a humane society and approved by a veterinarian.
Kari and Eric Stone were fined after they were spotted walking their pit bull in the city. They appealed to the city, saying they were unaware of the ordinance when they adopted their dog.
The Chippewa Herald (http://bit.ly/GVEL7Lbit.ly/GVEL7L ) reports the couple told City Council members the dog has no violent history or complaints against it.
