Los Angeles Dangerous Dog Ordinance Changes

July 20, 2011 - According to reports there are some proposed changes in dangerous dog ordinances. The new amendment that was agreed upon on Tuesday by the Board of Supervisors would give animal control officers the power to seize and destroy a dog, just for chasing a person.

This new amendment and existing dog regulations will give animal control officers the ability to declare a dog vicious. This is also redefining what is considered a vicious or aggressive dog, since the new amendment will not tolerate the dangerous dog.

According to one of the amendments, it is proposed that the dog would not necessarily even need to bite a person to cause severe injuries. The pet owner still has the right to contest the Animal Control findings about the dog, with the amended ordinance. This new ordinance will only allow the owner five days to act.

The amended ordinance will return to the board for an administrative vote, before it is finalized. The dog bite lawyers website at Ehline Law Firm PC welcome the ordinance and if you have additional info call us at 213.596.9642.
