ALMA, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan college town is trying to decide if pit bulls are vicious or not.

Alma college students are bringing the issue to Alma's City Commission.

Students believe an ordinance is discriminatory toward pit bull owners, unfair to the animal and is outdated.

The ordinance passed in 2006 states it's illegal to harbor or own any vicious dog, with exceptions.

If someone moved to the city with a pit bull, they had to apply for a renewable one-year license.

The topic was supposed to be discussed during a meeting two weeks ago, but that didn't happen.

It could come up at tonight's meeting, although officials say it is not on the agenda.
