Pit bulls could be muzzled in Huron

An increase in complaints about pit bulls is pushing Huron officials to consider new laws that would restrict the animals and their owners when they’re in public.

In the past few weeks, Huron police have responded to a few complaints about pit bulls running loose, said Laura Alkire, Huron’s assistant law director.

Police Chief John Majoy said he supports any new city ordinances that place restrictions on ownership of pit bulls.

“I think proactive is much, much better than reactive on this matter,” Majoy said.
