THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The Lafourche Parish Council has approved a measure to tighten ownership restrictions for dangerous and vicious dogs.

As with a similar law passed by the Terrebonne Parish Council this summer, The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1lexkkv ) the ordinance is not breed specific.

Under the new ordinance, owners of dogs declared dangerous or vicious are required to hold liability insurance, pay breeding fees and have their animals micro-chipped.

Councilman John Arnold says the ordinance will help to increase accountability for owners of these dangerous animals.
