ETOWAH, TN. (WRCB) -- A proposal to ban pit bulls within Etowah City limits has passed Monday night.

Councilman Burke Garwood tells Channel 3 council members voted 3 to 2 in favor of the ban.

The first reading of the ban passed unanimously last week.

It all started after a pit bull charged a fence close to children.

No one was injured, but the incident caused concern among parents.
