Supervisors revise new pit bull ordinance (Leflore County, MS)

Supervisors revise new pit bull ordinance

By: Amy McCullough, Staff Writer 01/23/2007

The Leflore County Board of Supervisors revised the recently passed ordinance on pit bulls on Tuesday, removing some vague language and allowing other breeds to be added on a case-by-case basis.

The ordinance had specified requirements on the confinement of pit bulls but also contained language including other unspecified dogs.

Board attorney Willie Perkins Sr. said breeds deemed vicious must be specified in order to alert owners to whom the ordinance would apply.

Perkins said residents could bring recommendations to the board of other breeds, which could then be deemed vicious on a case-by-case basis.

The ordinance requires that pit bulls be securely confined indoors or secluded in an outdoor pen marked by a "dangerous dog" sign.

Additionally, unconfined dogs would be muzzled and held on a leash by their owners, dogs could not be taken within 50 feet of school grounds and owners would be required to buy a $100,000 liability insurance policy.

Wayne Self, District 4 supervisor, who originally pushed for the ordinance, said he did not personally know of any pit bull attacks in the county but wanted an ordinance similar to other cities as a preventative measure.

He wanted to "get a step ahead of it before it happens," he said.

Self said any county residents who fails to receive help from the sheriff's office in dealing with vicious animals in the future should bring their complaints to the board for action.
