The Pointe Coupee Police Jury meets tonight to vote on an ordinance that would ban pitbulls from the parish.

Under the proposal, anyone who already owns a pitbull would have 6 months to find a new home for it.

Russell Young is the man behind the ban.

He says the parish is overrun with dangerous pitbulls and owners aren't taking responsibility.
