DONALDSONVILLE- The Ascension Parish Council has amended its animal control ordinance to better track and control dogs considered a threat to the public.

Dogs declared as "dangerous" under the new ordinance's wording must now have a special tag, which comes with a $10 initial registration fee to the owner and a $5 annual renewal.

The ordinance requires a tracking microchip in the dog, also at the owner's expense, as well as guidelines for how to secure the dog both on and off the owner's property.

The parish's animal control center, at its discretion, may require a dangerous dog to be spayed or neutered, according to the change.
