BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A dangerous animals ordinance is not on the books in Prentiss County, but that could change.
Supervisors plan to consider what other counties are doing to address the issue.
Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar says something needs to be done because state law is often too vague to follow on a county level.
The sheriff says prosecution under state law can be burdensome to law enforcement because it requires a substantial amount of legwork to follow on the part of law enforcement.
"One complaint is too many really, and we've had a few. It's not a great number, but we have to take them seriously because we don't want anyone to get hurt or killed," Prentiss County Board of Supervisors President Mike Kesler said.
"We probably average two to three calls a day just regarding animals in general, so it's something that would give us the ability to have some enforcement power regarding animal issues," Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar said.
Supervisors have not taken any official action on this issue.
