Parish considers revamping animal control

Eighteen months after three dogs killed a Morganza toddler, the Pointe Coupee Parish Police Jury is set to overhaul the parish's animal control ordinance.

On Tuesday, police jurors are expected to begin debating whether to assign fees to owners of potentially dangerous dogs, levy fines to owners of loose dogs and make other provisions based on recommendations from the parish's Animal Control Committee.

According to Monday's Advocate, the push to reshape the animal-control ordinance began after 4-year-old Michael "Blaise" Landry was mauled by a neighbor's three boxers on April 10, 2009.
