Denver — The City of Denver has overturned a 31-year old ban on pit bulls.
Voters approved removing the ban on the dog breed, allowing residents to own up to two pit bulls as long as they obtain a breed-restricted permit.
Pit bulls were first banned in Denver in 1989.
Sixty-four percent of voters were in favor of overturning the ban, while 35% were against it.
The new ordinance goes into effect Jan. 1.
