A controversial ban on pit bulls and Rottweilers has been suspended on Long Island after a public outcry. Hundreds of people showed up for a public meeting in Rockville Centre Tuesday.

The village recently banned residents from owning pit bulls and Rottweilers.

The board took up the issue at a meeting Tuesday after receiving so many complaints.

Members voted to suspend implementation of the law until at least next month, when a public hearing on repealing the law will be held.
