Senate votes to toughen up on dangerous dogs
Woodbury Minnesota 8420 City Centre Drive 55125

Senators voted Thursday to toughen state laws related to dangerous dogs.

The Senate bill does not address specific dog breeds, such as pit bulls, but it prohibits people convicted of certain crimes from owning dogs. It also outlines when a dangerous dog can be killed by animal control.
