(NECN) - Boston officials are calling for a crackdown on pit bulls.
The Boston Herald reports that officials have filed a bill that calls for state lawmakers to let cities and towns zero-in on the dogs before they attack again.
Mayor Tom Menino told the Herald that the legislation is about making city neighborhoods safer.
In November, a state law went into effect that strikes down any breed-specific legislation that cities or towns may have in place.
The MSPCA supports that law.
