The city council of Montreal, Canada, has passed a controversial pit bull ban with a 37-23 vote in favor of changes to the city’s animal control bylaw, which will ban the new ownership of pit bulls and pit bull-type dogs.

According to CBC, the bill, which was original supposed to come to a vote in 2018, was moved up after a woman was fatally attacked by a dog in Montreal. The attacking dog was identified as a pit bull, but police are still waiting on DNA tests to come back to support these claims.

The new measure will go into effect starting on Oct. 3 in all of the city’s 19 boroughs. This ban applies to Staffordshire bull terriers, American bull terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, mixes of these breeds and any dog who presents characteristics of these breeds.

Those in Montreal who already own one of the banned dogs will have to obtain a special permit for their pet by Dec. 31. This permit can be passed on to a family member or spouse, in case the owner of the dog dies before their pet.
