ANDOVER, Kan. (KWCH) A photo of a sign that reads "No pit bulls allowed" has gone viral on Facebook.

The sign is posted at the Dog Park in Andover Central Park.

Kayla Bishop shared a photo on our her Facebook page on Sunday. It has already been shared more than 700 times.

Bishop says she is "very confused and disheartened" by the sign.

"Please share so we can try to gain understanding of this new rule and maybe work towards a solution that benefits all the wonderful pitbulls that DESERVE to be here!" Reads her post.

Andover Police Chief Michael Keller says the signs went up after reports of pit bulls at the park. The dogs have been banned inside city limits since 2000.

If someone in Andover has a pit bull, Keller says officers will first ask pet owners to remove the pit bull from the city. If they don't, they will face a $500 fine, up to 30 days in jail and police can eventually take the animal.

More than 70 Kansas towns and counties have pit bull bans or restrictions in place.
