In Buckner, Missouri, pit bulls are banned. A couple with two pit bull mixes interested in moving into the area would like the ban repealed or, at the very least, an exception made.
Let's all gasp in horror at the incident leading to the expulsion of all Buckner pit bulls - a puppy described as a pit bull bit a tricycle. Yes, there was a kid on the three-wheeled device but come on! No one was hurt, the dog could have been more interested in the rubber tires of the bike and it wasn't as if all pit bulls in a 5-mile radius were eating children left and right.
Oh yes, Buckner is the same town where a Bull Mastiff severely mauled two people in September of 2007. Bull mastiffs have not been banned (nor should they, of course).
Fascinating logic out of Buckner!
