Pro-pit bull walk scheduled for Saturday
Tuesday, June 14, 2011
Vancouver pit bull supporters are staging another event in the wake of talk by the Vancouver City Council on banning the breed.
A pit bull walk will start at 9:30 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot next to Who Song & Larry’s restaurant at 111 East Columbia River Way, organizer Cash Frackiewicz said Monday.
He said he expects more than 200 people. More than 400 people showed up to a protest in East Vancouver on Wednesday.
A citizen proposed the ban to the city council following an unprovoked attack by three unspayed female pit bulls on a 9-year-old boy in late May.
The city council will discuss the ban, along with options for harsher rules and penalties on vicious dogs of all breeds, in August.
