Rhode Island Family Points to Westport as Model for Dangerous Dog Law
Members of a Rhode Island family whose dog bit the ear of a prize-winning calf are calling for a change in that states vicious dog laws and are pointing to WestportҒs dangerous dog ordinance as a good model.

Todays Naragansett Times reported that the Winn family of South Kingston spent thousands of dollars and months fighting to keep possession of their Siberian husky Jenga after it bit the ear of the calf in February.

They suggested Rhode Island adopt a law similar to the one approved in Westport last year.

In an editorial, the newspaper adds its voice to a call for change, saying:

ғIt’s time to revisit the law. As an article in today’s Narragansett Times details, the town of Westport, Connecticut, has a far better regulation in place. It was crafted with input from animal experts, veterinarians, law enforcement, residents. It defines specifically what a dangerous (their term) dog is, in a way Rhode Island law does not.
