Public Records Show .... Pit Bulls Had History of Attacks

The Tacoma News-Tribune can report--because of access to public records--this: "Almost three years before a neighbor’s pit bulls attacked and seriously injured Sue Gorman, other dogs from the same Key Peninsula house menaced a 15-month-old girl."

This is important to know because the City of Tacoma is considering a pit-bull ordinance. Now the public has more information on a topic that can literally kill you or a 15-month-old girl.
