In Lawrenceburg, there have been four attacks by pit bulls in the past five weeks. Now, many are calling for stricter dog laws.

In each case, the dogs severely wounded, and in some cases killed, the victims.

A Sheriff's Deputy trying to serve a warrant was bitten last week. he had to shoot and kill the dog to get it off of him.

A 10-year-old boy playing in his own yard was badly mauled after a pit attacked him. In another part of the county, several other animals have been killed and badly injured after pit bulls attacked them.

The County Judge Executive Steve Cornish says the recent events, are pushing lawmakers to go back and address and create vicious dog and leash laws.

County officials say any changes to the law will be universal and will not target a particular dog breed.
