No ban on rottweilers in Hopkinton

Posted:
HOPKINTON (KWWL) -

Rottweilers will be allowed in the city of Hopkinton.  That's the decision from the city council during its meeting Monday night.

Members say since there was no one really against that particular breed, they didn't see a need to change policy. The city does outlaw pit bulls, however.

The city council's ban consideration comes after three-year-old Vanessa Husmann was attacked by two rottweilers last month.  She died from her injuries.  The dogs were euthanized.
