Peoria - An American bulldog mauled a 9 year old boy in a neighbor's yard. The boy was hospitalized.
Councilwoman Beth Akeson wants to craft legislation to prevent such attacks.
“It’s one of those issues where a dog isn’t declared dangerous until someone is hurt,” she said. “I’d like to see an ordinance written so people have a very clear understanding for how people must care for their dogs and restrain their dogs.”
