Sonoma may consider ban on pit bulls

Sonoma may soon consider banning pit bulls altogether. City Councilwoman Joanne Sanders says she'll introduce the issue before the entire council to ban pit bulls, and possibly other aggressive breeds within the city.

She says she's motivated by last week's attack in Pacifica that killed a pregnant woman. Sonoma County already has a law requiring the spaying and neutering of certain breeds as well as registration and insurance requirements and fines for violations.
