ALC victory successfully challenges legitimacy of Denver’s pit bull ban

Thursday, October 08, 2009

Lawyers for The Animal Law Center (ALC) have successfully called into question the City of Denver’s ability to accurately enforce its own ban on pit bulls. This achievement was the result of a recent ruling which determined that city officials had misidentified a boxer-mix as a pit bull. The case revealed the city’s reliance upon inadequately trained personnel and faulty evidence to identify breeds banned under its own ordinance 855. The implication is that hundreds of misidentified dogs may have been unnecessarily euthanized in the years since the ban has been in force.
