Bourbon County lawmakers are preparing to take another look at their vicious dog ordinance.

This review comes after one resident, Marily Motaban, claims her dogs and horses have been repeatedly attacked by her neighbor’s dogs, and animal control officials have done nothing.

Under the current law, animal control officials say they cannot go onto someone else's property to remove so-called vicious dogs without surveillance video proof, or pictorial proof of the attacks happening.

Montaban says that's ridiculous.

"I have witnesses. I don't need any video proof."

Officials maintain that he-said, she-said witness accounts are not enough to take the action Montaban desires, so they have agreed to see what, if anything, they can do to put more teeth in the law when it comes to undocumented attacks by dangerous animals.
