DENVER (KKTV) - UPDATE 2/14/20:
Denver's mayor decided to keep the pit bull ban in place for his city.
Mayor Michael Hancock made the announcement via Twitter on Friday.
"I have heard from thousands of residents passionately expressing their opinions on both sides of this issue," Mayor Hancock wrote. "After deep reflection and consideration, I find that I cannot, in good conscience, support this legislation and will exercise my authority as Mayor to veto it."
This comes days after the city council voted in favor of the legislation that would have lifted a 30-year ban on the breed with restrictions. You can read the letter from the mayor below:
