Lee County working on dangerous dog ordinance

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Lee County Commissioners are also working on a new dangerous dog ordinance. They discussed it Tuesday night.     

They plan to amend their current ordinance to match state law by creating classifications for "vicious" and "dangerous" dogs.    

Owners whose dogs are listed in those categories would have different rules to follow to try to make sure their dogs don't hurt anyone.  

"Well I think anytime you have a dangerous dog in a neighborhood it can cause some damage, same thing as a vicious dog, so what this does is it tries to protect the public where you have a dangerous dog," said Jimmy Skipper, County Attorney.  

Lee County Commissioners will vote on the amended ordinance at their next meeting.
