Pit Bull Ban Won’t Be Put To Popular Vote Any Time Soon | Miami New Times

The current countywide ban on pit bulls seems safe from renewed scrutiny from Miami-Dade voters in the coming years. After an attempt to repeal the ban failed by a 63 percent to 37 percent margin in 2012, keeping the decades-old ban in place, activists say they’ve all but given up hope in changing the legislation.

If you are caught with a pit bull in the county, you must pay a $500 fine and remove the dog from Miami. Strays are picked up by animal control and euthanized five days later if no one claims them. This is particularly problematic in the face of a 2012 county commission action that made Miami-Dade a “Kill Free” shelter community.
