Possible breed specific mandatory spay/neuter law (MSN) is to be considered by the Cypress, California city council. According to the article, the council will likely consider the ordinance in January.

Pit bull complaints trigger spay-law study in Cypress
By MICHAEL MELLO
THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

CYPRESS - Responding to citizen complaints about pit bulls in one Cypress neighborhood, the city is considering a first-of-its-kind law, mandating spaying and neutering for specific dog breeds.
If passed, the law would be the first of its kind in the county, according to OC Animal Control officials

Several people have voiced their concerns to the City Council over the last two meetings, prompting the council to order staff to pursue the spay-and-neuter requirement. The council did not say which breeds should be targeted in the proposed law.

San Bernardino County passed a similar ordinance earlier this year. According to county documents, that county's animal control impounded more than 1,700 pit bulls and euthanized 80 percent of them. The law there is designed to keep the pit bull population low.

OC Animal Control Director Ryan Drabek said there have been issues involving dogs in Cypress. He declined to elaborate, saying the incidents were still under investigation.

The concerned citizens complained about pit bulls in their south Cypress neighborhood, not far from Los Alamitos Race Course.

Two of them are Tom and Janet Felien.

Several pit bulls live around the corner from them, Janet Felien said, and one of them mauled the Feliens' Yorkie last year when Tom Felien took the dog out for a walk.

"We almost lost her. She had a tube in her for 10 days," Janet Felien said. "It cost us $700."

She said there have been more than 10 incidents involving those pit bulls, including one where a pit bull attacked a small child.

The pit bull that attacked the Yorkie was euthanized, Felien said, but that dog had two puppies. She would like to see all of them put down.

Janet Felien said she supports the city's proposed action, but that it doesn't go far enough.

"I'm in favor of it, but people like that don't abide by it," she said of the spay-and-neuter proposal. "Once the dogs are taken from them, (owners) just get another one. It takes (authorities) forever to declare a dog as vicious."

The pit bulls' owners could not be reached for comment.

The City Council will likely consider the new law in January.

Laguna Woods officials last year adopted an ordinance that calls for dogs and cats 6 months and older to be spayed or neutered - unless a special permit is obtained. The measure was the first mandatory spay-neuter ordinance in Orange County.

basically the lady got her dog mauled and now she wants ALL of these dogs killed? people are ridiculous. if a black, white, or hispanic person killed one of my family members, i doubt the government would require all BWoH people to get hysterectomies/vasectomies or sentence them all to death. lmao. i get that it would be frustrating dealing with a neighbor who doesn't control their dog, but that's no reason to point the finger at all of us. i'm sure she wouldn't appreciate BSL against her little yapper dog.

Lvis, I hope you get your situation resolved and I agree there could have been other matters taken to deal with this.
