City Council says it can do little to prevent dog attacks from occurring
There is little the City of Watertown can do to prevent dog attacks from occurring. That was the consensus of a discussions session held during last night's council meeting. A number of citizens are calling for action following a series of dog attacks, including the highly publicized attack involving a pit bull at a Nellis St. home last month. The discussion included input from the city's police chief Joe Goss and Jefferson County's dog warden Todd Cummings. In the end, it was suggested that the city focus on stricter enforcement of some of the current laws on the books, including leash and licensing laws. The city recently passed a law banning dogs from most outside public events.
