Pit Bulls banned in Arkansas town

Violators of city ordinance could face fines, jail time

CARAWAY, Ark. (localmemphis.com) - Owners of pit bulls in an Arkansas town have until tomorrow to find new homes for them.

Last month the city of Caraway in Craighead County passed an ordinance to ban all pit bull breeds in the city limits. The measure was prompted because of several recent pit bull attacks involving children.

 

 

Caraway's police chief says the town has about 25 to 30 pit bulls. Those who do not comply could be fined between $200 and $2,5002 and could face up to 90 days in jail.
