Albany - - An Albany neighborhood watch group is concerned about pit bulls in their neighborhood.

They invited city officials to a meeting tonight to discuss the issue. 

About 25 members attended the Dover Lane Area Neighborhood Watch Monday evening. City Manager Al Lott listened to their concerns about a new resident who has five pit bulls.

They admit the dogs haven't caused any problems, but they worry the dogs could get loose. A representative from Animal Control told folks what to do if a vicious dog approaches them.  

"The best thing I'd advise you to do is stand still, keep eye contact with the animal, and slowly back off from the animal," Sherman Capers says.

Neighborhood watch members say they're especially concerned with Halloween coming up since kids will be trick or treating.
