DeKalb could add teeth to dog bite law
DeKALB – The DeKalb City Council will consider a proposal to upgrade the city’s ordinances on dog attacks in the coming weeks.
The proposal specifically outlaws a dog attacking people, dogs or other animals. Under the proposal, the owner of a dog that attacks or attempts to attack would be fined at least $500. City Manager Mark Biernacki described the ordinance as being a sliding scale.
“Penalties and so forth would increase depending on the severity of the dog-running-at-large issue,” Biernacki said.
