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
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.
