The director of Beaufort County Animal Services, Tallulah Trice, on Dec. 6, 2016, urged anyone interested in getting a pit bull, or pit bull mix, not to buy online, but to adopt at a shelter instead. Trice told us buying online only increases the population - taking away from the the county's mandatory spay/neuter ordinance, which has been successful since going into effect in Oct. 2015. The population of pit bulls in Beaufort County is about 3,000 less than it wouldn't been without the ordinance, Trice said. Josh Mitelman The Island Packet & The Beaufort Gazette
