Probation-like program established for bad dogs
DONALDSONVILLE - Parish leaders tightened the collar on dangerous dogs Thursday night.
The parish council approved a measure that requires people who own dogs deemed dangerous by a judge to take precautions. Dogs that meet the criteria would be tagged with a microchip that holds information about the animal. The dog would also have to wear a special collar labeling them as a "dangerous animal."
Animal control agents said the move gives them more power to track problem dogs. The program is similar to probation for humans.
Problem dogs could be euthanized if the owners can't keep them under control.
