City Calls For Authority Over Pit Bull Owners (Mesquite, TX)

Mesquite Calls For City Authority Over Pit Bull Owners

City Wants To Mandate Higher Fences, Microchips

POSTED: 12:31 am CDT September 4, 2008

UPDATED: 7:45 am CDT September 4, 2008

City leaders in Mesquite say a recent pit bull attack on a 60-year-old woman
helps make their case for putting more bite in animal-control laws.

The city wants owners of dangerous breeds to build taller fences and take
other safety precautions.

Shirley <http://www.nbc5i. com/topic/ Shirley+Lantrip> Lantrip, 60, said she
was on her morning walk Saturday when she was mauled by a pit bull. She said
the dog jumped over a fence and knocked her down.

Lantrip credits a neighbor with saving her life.

"If that man over there hadn't gotten a hold of that dog, I'd be dead, it
was that bad," she said.

Lantrip, who received more than 20 stitches, said she is joining Mesquite's
efforts to try and control pit bulls.

"I'm at the top of the list," she said.

Mesquite and <http://www.nbc5i. com/topic/ Duncanville> Duncanville are
asking state lawmakers to give cities the authority to regulate pit bull
owners.

Cliff Keheley, of Mesquite Housing and Community Services, said city leaders
don't believe all pit bulls are bad.

Mesquite officials said stronger controls, such as higher fences and
mandatory microchips, could reduce the number of dog attacks.

"We can't take chances on the nature of the dog when it comes to public
safety," Keheley said.

The dog that attacked Lantrip is in quarantine and will be euthanized. NBC 5
was told the dog's owners did not want to bring the animal back to their
home after the attack.
