Dogs might be banned from Pennsylvania city's downtown9/18/2012
Dogs in Beaver Falls, Penn., might soon be banned from the city's downtown. The town, 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, is only home to 10,000 people -- but apparently enough of them are raising unruly dogs that city planners are considering the ban. Concerns run the gamut from "pit bulls and Rottweilers [which] are sometimes left tied to parking meters by their owners" to dogs that are mysteriously described as being "as big as ponies." One city administrator says the proposal is neither a whim nor some pony-dog-centric fever dream: "It's not that anybody on the council doesn't like dogs. It's just that many dog owners are being irresponsible and ruining things for everybody." [Source]
