Quebec is contemplating tighter regulations for pit bulls after recent incidents involving the breed.
Agriculture Minister Pierre Paradis says the government is examining the possibility of following Ontario's example and adopting a provincewide ban on pit bulls.
A woman was bitten on the thighs by a pit bull on Tuesday in Sainte-Adele, north of Montreal.
She was visiting an acquaintance and the dog was tied up when it lunged at her. The woman was taken to hospital and eventually released.
A 55-year-old Montreal woman was found dead last week after being attacked by a pit bull.
And on Tuesday, the Montreal-area city of Brossard said it intends to ban the arrival of any new pit bulls on its territory following a vicious attack on an eight-year-old girl in a park last September.
