Change.org: Westwego needs to back off pit bull ordinance

After a woman in Westwego was mauled by her own pit bulls, city councilman Glenn Green proposed a new law that would require pit bull owners to post a warning sign and have at least $100,000 in liability insurance.

Now, the group Change.org is pushing an online petition demanding that Councilman Green back off. Change.org calls pit bulls wonderful, loveable, and courageous and says Councilman Green’s proposal discriminates against the breed.

More than 1,600 people have signed the petition as of Thursday afternoon.
