Pit Bull Attack May Lead To Regulate Breed

The death of a child in a pit bull  attack has some Lowell officials upset that they have no power to  regulate dog breeds.  

The state legislature voted in 2012 to ban cities  and towns from passing breed specific ordinances.  

Lowell City Councilor  Rodney Elliott says it makes no sense that the city can ban chickens  but can't regulate pit bulls.  

A seven-year-old boy died when he entered  a fenced area off Clare Street on Saturday and was attacked by two pit  bulls.
