BOSTON —
Boston
Mayor Thomas Menino said he wants to resurrect a city law requiring pit
bulls to be muzzled in public, despite a new state ban on such laws
that takes effect next month.

The Boston Herald reported that Menino's comments this weekend were in response to pit bull attacks in East Boston on Friday.

captured the other. The dog that was shot survived, and both pit bulls

A new state law that takes effect Nov. 1 bans breed-specific ordinances.

Menino said he's going to push for legislation that deals with pit bulls.
