city council!

sounds like the nanny state gone bad again.
I love pit bulls. Always brings a smile to my face when I hear of some twit being savaged by a dog. He/she usually deserves it.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.

In our state, if you accidentally run over a deer, you can call and get a "road kill permit" and keep the thing.
My local government, in an effort to generate more money, decided to license every business possible...they have 3000 occupational license categories...including sorcery, withcraft and necromancy..at the asame price for licenses to practice law, accounting, engineering and medicine.

Obviously your politicians haven't figured out they could grant permits to possess these critters and charge an arm and leg for them and run the whole city government on the income. A species argument.
