    A breed no longer apart: pitbulls could get a reprieve from the list of prohibited breeds (File photograph)


Pitbull terriers, at present are on Bermuda’s list of prohibited breeds, could be set for a reprieve.

The Dogs Amendment Act, designed to move the popular but banned pets to the list of restricted dog breeds, will be debated by MPs in Parliament today.

Pitbull lovers have argued against a ban, while others have claimed pitbull-type dogs are dangerous.

Some animals seized by dog wardens have later been put down.

Also up for debate is the Development and Planning Amendment Bill 2018.

The Bill was designed to give more power to the Department of Planning to impose penalties for breaches of planning regulations.
