Senate votes to toughen up on dangerous dogs

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.

The bill passed 66-1. A similar bill remains under consideration in the House.
