EL DORADO, Kan. (AP) – Another Kansas community is reviewing its ban on pit bulls.

The Butler County Times Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1jiPDTA ) that requests from the public have prompted the El Dorado City Commission to study a repeal of its 1989 ban on the dogs.

El Dorado’s regulation defines a pit bull as a bull terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, American pit bull terrier, American Staffordshire or a mix of those breeds.

Commissioner Bill Young says he wants to get a history of pit bulls in El Dorado and see why the prohibition was adopted 25 years ago.

The city commission in Garden City voted this week remove pit bulls and similar breeds from its vicious dog ordinance. Residents had been allowed to own the dogs, but had to post signs or keep them in pens.
