The article Teen Arrested in Weld Shooting After Dispute Over Pit bull discuss a confrontation between neighbors on a Weld County property. It started when the pit bull owned by Botello Gonzalez started harassing neighbor's cows and chickens. Tensions simmered between the neighbors until the shooting happened at 9:30 last night. It resulted in a dead man and a wounded woman. This incident posts a problem to the Colorado community because pit bulls are illegal in most of the state. The fact that it was the type of breed that committed this act, there will most likely be bigger consequences for the suspects. It will also start an debate on whether pit bulls should be illegal in the whole state. This will probably open up some old wounds for allot of people in who have owned or own pit bulls in Colorado.
