New Llano, Louisiana to Pursue Breed-Specific Legislation
From the Leesville Daily Leader:
The Town of New Llano is pursuing Breed Selective Legislation in an ordinance introduced at Tuesday’s town council meeting.
The ordinance will allow the Town of New Llano to regulate and control the keeping of animals of vicious breeds within the corporate limits of New Llano, requirements for keeping animals of vicious breeds and penalties for violation of the proposed ordinance.
The town defines breeds of dogs as vicious:
€ Pit Bulls, any form of Pit or Pit Bull mix
€ German Shepherd or German Shepherd mix
€ Rottweiler or Rottweiler mix
€ Doberman Pinscher or Doberman mix
€ Chow or Chow mix

Please contact the New Llano Mayor and City Council members at the city hall address below and politely inform them that breed-specific legislation in any form is ineffective and unenforceable. An enforced leash law and a non-breed-specific dog law are more than adequate to police irresponsible dog owners of any breed:
