Sheriff Takes Plan to Deal with Vicious Dogs To Supervisors

In a three point plan, Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal outlined to the Board of Supervisors how Animal Control will deal with any dog deemed to be vicious or dangerous. Sheriff Royal says the first portion is micro chipping the dog so it can be identified. In the second point, the home will be inspected to determine if the dog is safely contained. The Sheriff says the third phase will cost the owner.

“The ordinance is going to require anybody having a dog that’s been deemed either potentially dangerous or vicious has to have a special liability insurance coverage or bond in the amount of $100,000.”

 The change was brought about in an effort to control vicious dogs and the damage that they can be responsible for.  Animal control officials said they currently have no dogs listed a vicious, but have thirty dogs listed as dangerous.
