Several high-profile incidents of police officers shooting dogs in recent weeks have communities talking about safety and dealing with potentially dangerous animals, but in hundreds of American cities, certain "dangerous dogs" are already restricted or banned.
Breed-specific ordinances range from bans on pitt bulls alone, to a declaration of many breeds as "vicious" or "dangerous." Some states have no cities with restrictions. Iowa, where a man was attacked by two pitt bulls last week, has 81 cities with some form of breed-specific ordinance — more than in any other state.
Meanwhile in California, where video of police officers shooting a Rottweiler while his owner looked on went viral last week, there are only a handful of local ordinances, and none in Hawthorne, Calif., where the incident occurred.
