Pit bull work session produces no results

A General Assembly task force formed to consider a controversial ruling by the Maryland Court of Appeals that pit bulls are “inherently dangerous” made no concrete decisions during a work session Thursday in Annapolis.

Only six of the 10 task force members attended the session, at which other states’ approaches were discussed. Dog advocacy groups and property owners’ associations who attended said decisions need to be made as soon as possible because pit bull owners are getting notices from landlords banning possession of the animals.

Task force members said they would meet once more this year or during the first week of next year’s legislative session.
