(WTNH) -- Many of our viewers have a lot to say about a bunch of pit bull attacks in Waterbury that have city officials looking into new dog laws.
"I've been watching a lot about the pitbulls lately and I want to know how long the state of Connecticut is going to let this go on with these injuries and these deaths with these dogs before we put a ban on these dogs being sold in the state of Connecticut," said Linda in Plainville.
"The Wallingford dog pound, they are very picky on putting pit bulls into people's hands. They do a background check, Waterbury apparently does not do this. There's not a dangerous dog, there's dangerous owners," said Paul in Wallingford. "I think these people should definitely be looked into as well as the Waterbury dog pound."
"In reference to the pit bull situation, I don't know why the law isn't stated that people that own pit bulls have to register them and you can not own a pit bull unless you are older than 18-years-old," said April in Waterbury. "I've seen so many kids around here that are irresponsible with baby pit bulls with big studded collars on. I think it needs to be regulated."
"These types of dogs, I feel should be handled carefully," said Deborah in Hamden. "It is the owner's responsibility and if their dog should attack someone there should be no excuses."
