RANTOUL – After a proposal to ban dogs by breed drew criticism from animal activists, service dog owners, pet owners and breed enthusiasts, the Rantoul village staff is proposing a compromise animal control ordinance.

The proposal would limit the number of dogs and cats based on the size of a dwelling and would prohibit more than four dogs and/or cats at a home.

Some people have contacted the mayor and council. You can read one reponse here. Sounds like no BSL for Rantoul!

Considering a ban on Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans
Mayor opposes plan. If you write, be sure to show support to Mayor Williams. Linked article pretty positive.

Williams opposes a plan by village board member Chuck Smith to ban Rottweilers, pit bulls and Doberman pinschers from Rantoul.

Just FIY, Mr Charles Smith rejected my email based on it's content.
"Your message to: cksmith@village.rantoul.il.us

How nice....

What a fucking dick. Did you see this quote in the News-Gazette?

"I'd like to ban certain breeds and set limits on other breeds," Smith said on Monday. "We need to ban pit bulls, Rottweilers, and Doberman pinschers based on the reputations of the animals, not the owners."

What sense does this make? Has he ever even met one of these breeds?

He is so going down. Let me know if you are able to get in contact with this guy. I plan to write an article for Smile Politely about this issue.
