City Will Consider Dog Ordinance

One Central Kentucky city moves closer to putting a vicious dog ordinance on the books.

City Commissioners passed the first reading of the proposal Tuesday.

Under the proposed law dog owners would pay between $200 and $500 if their dog attacks.

Mayor Dodd Dixon says they're targeting drug dealers with dangerous pets.

The city of Winchester defines a vicious dog as any dog trained for fighting or a dog which attacks when it's not provoked.
