Alderman Virginia Rugai has proposed an ordinance banning pit bulls and pit bull mixes within the city limits. If the ordinance passes, dog owners would have 30 days to get rid of their pets. An online petition has been created that will be sent to Mayor Daley urging him to veto the proposal should it come to him.
