The Yakima City Council votes to uphold the city's ban on pit bull dog breeds during last night's meeting.

The council voting 6-1 to uphold the ban, which was first put in place in the 80's, until further information can be gathered on how to properly regulate the breed.

Last month, the city was asked to consider softening the ban, however, code enforcement and police asked the council maintain it to protect the public.
