One of these two dogs that killed a neighbor’s pet in the Magnolia Station subdivision of Jasper may have to be destroyed. This case unleashed the city's new aggressive enforcement of their leash law.
The City of Jasper will begin vigorously enforcing the state’s leash law, effective immediately, following an “informative hearing” on a dangerous dog case at the Jasper City Council meeting Monday night.
Jasper Mayor John Weaver said the city has been dealing with dogs running loose for too long inside the city limits––for at least twenty years––and it’s time to force owners to control their animals.
“We are going to control animals in Jasper from this day forward,” Weaver told the council, city hall staff and others at the meeting.
