Madison Co. amendment to deal with dangerous dogs | Pets
Madison County voters will have a unique amendment on their ballot.
Local Amendment One would give the county commission more power to deal with dangerous dogs.
It reads that county officials can destroy a dangerous dog or return it to its owners if they feel the dog is being restrained properly.
The proposal passed in Montgomery unanimously, and animal rights groups say they have no objections to it.
Dog owners who run afoul of the law would be responsible for any costs associated with the incident.
