WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KMOX) — The Wentzville Board of Aldermen will be considering revisions to the city’s pit bull ordinance.

Alderman Nick Guccione says the ordinance is outdated, and should be extended to all potentially dangerous animals. He says not all pit bulls or other stereotypically vicious dogs are dangerous, so the responsibility should be on the pet owner to restrain an animal prone to attacking.

The ordinance would impose fines on the owners of animals that make too much noise, destroy property or attack. And any dog that bites multiple people might be subject to euthanasia.

The ordinance will be discussed at tomorrow’s Board of Aldermen meeting along with the issue of whether red-light cameras should still be allowed in the city, following a St. Louis Circut Court decison condeming them as unlawful.
