City of Verona cracking down on Dog Ordinances • WTVA.com

The City of Verona has been dealing with issues with dogs for the past two months…one dog in particular, Pit bulls.

Verona has had 3 Pit Bull attacks in the small time frame, but this past weekend was the worst so far.

Verona Police Chief Anthony Anderson said a teenage boy was attacked in his home Saturday while playing with his dog. The Pit bull then became aggressive biting the boy multiple times on the hand and face.

He was taken to North Mississippi Medical Center where he received several stitches.

The chief said him and his staff will continue to work harder to enforce the dog ordinances within the city limits.

“We are going to in the near future, become more aggressive toward our animal owners,” Anderson said. “We are not trying to take the animals away from them, we just want them to respect the ordinances. This will make it safe for all citizens.”

Verona Animal Control did take the dog into custody and sent it to Jackson to be tested for rabies.

Verona officials said they do not know if the dog will be put to sleep.
