STANFORD, Ky. (AP) - Lincoln County attorney says he plans to revisit the county’s dog ordinance after seven Presa Canario dogs managed to escape their kennels and attack a 46-year-old woman.

The Advocate-Messenger reports (https://bit.ly/1JJYiuT) that Daryl Day said he wants to take action to avoid a similar incident from occurring.

Day plans to propose changes to the county’s current dog ordinance that would require kennels to be better maintained, stricter licenses for kennels and inspections by animal control and law enforcement to keep kennels up to standard, particularly for breeds of dogs known to be large and aggressive.

Police say Loretta Stevens sustained severe injuries after being mauled by the dogs on July 27. The owner of the dogs, Chris Pope, has been charged with harboring vicious animals and animal cruelty.
