A pit bull and a Rottweiler are being banned from the Elizabethtown city limits after being involved in multiple court cases stemming from attacks on other dogs.
The ban is the first since the city enacted a vicious dog ordinance six years ago.
The owner of the dogs, Richard Brashear, signed the agreement saying he would move his dogs out of the city within 60 days. Brashear said he's paying the price for recent dog attacks in Louisville and contends his dogs are not dangerous.
A 14-month-old child and a 60-year-old man were killed within two weeks of one another last November in Louisville after being attacked by pit bulls. The city has debated a stricter ordinance for vicious dogs.
