Louisiana City Pushes for Mandatory Neutering

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - After recent attacks on children by dogs, the

Louisiana SPCA is urging the New Orleans City Council to require

pet owners to neuter their pets if they do not get a breeders

license.

WWL-TV reports that two separate pit bull attacks in 24 hours

left a 7-year-old girl and a 5-year-old girl badly hurt, prompted

the move. The SPCA was called to each attack, and in both cases

they say the dogs involved were not neutered or spayed.

According to Katherine LeBlanc of the SPCA, unneutered and

unspayed animals are more likely to get out. LeBlanc says dogs

running loose are a threat.
