Pitbull terriers to be ‘released’

A total of 193 pitbull terriers, which were seized under the ban on dangerous dogs, will now be returned to their owners if they pass a behaviour test, news agency ANP reports.

The government has scrapped the ban on pitbull terriers because it has not led to fewer dog attacks.
