The three police-on-dog shootings inside of a week have communities talking about safety and dealing with potentially dangerous animals, but in hundreds of American cities, "dangerous dogs" are already restricted or banned.

The breed-specific ordinances range from bans on pitt bulls alone, to a declaration of many breeds as "vicious" or "dangerous." Some states have no cities with restrictions. Iowa, where a man was attacked by two pitt bulls last week, has 81 cities with some form of breed-specific ordinance — more than in any other state.
