Shaker Heights votes NO to pit bull ban

SHAKER HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - Shaker Heights city council rejects a proposal to ban pit bulls from the city.

The proposed ordinance failed 5-2.

Last July, Annie Williams was attacked by a pit bull in front of her grandchildren. The 71-year-old died from her wounds.

She was attacked at a relative's home.

Her death prompted city council members to discuss the possibility of an ordinance regulating vicious dogs.
