I am very concerned with Velma's city ordinances. With a recent incidnet I found out that if a dog bites you, no matter how serious the injury, even if you loose a limb, nothing can or will be done. I know that there are no laws about stray roaming dogs in Velma and I think this needs to be addressed. If I am in my own yard and get attacked by a dog, the only thing that will be done is the owners will be spoken to and told to keep the dog pinned up. Well, herein lies the problem. What if the dog gets out, repetedly? What does it have to come to for some type of law to be passed? I would hate for a small child to be attacked for it to be a problem. It shouldn't matter the age of the person attacked, or the severity of the injury. People need to be responsible for thier own animals. Period!

I agree. There needs to be a law to let people know that if they feel they have a right to own a dog, they have to be responsible for that dogs actions..

I have been told that nothing can be done in this matter, the law is the law. Well, I want to make it public, if the laws can be changed, maybe this is the way to do it! Thank you for the support!

If a dog comes at you, your spouse, your child, or a friend or neighbor, you are authorized by Law to shoot and kill, or stab and kill that animal which threatens your life or limb! You don't need the dang city passing more laws or rules, my goodness we are restricted by enough laws, just take the animal out, there is nothing the owner can do and if the dog harms you then you sue in civil court and owner will pay!
