KINGSTON, Jamaica — Eighty-six per cent of respondents to the Jamaica Observer poll question ‘should Pit-bulls be allowed as guard dogs in public spaces?’ said no.

The poll question follows an incident last week where a woman was attacked and bitten by a Pit-bull at a business place in Half Way Tree, St Andrew.

The incident resulted in an outcry from angry residents, insisting that security companies not openly use guard dogs in business places when patrons are present.

Many countries have banned Pit-bulls or require muzzles on them in public.
