Waterloo Approves Overhaul of Animal Control Rules

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) -- The Waterloo City Council has approved an overhaul of the city's animal control regulations after several high-profile dog attacks last year.
   The council unanimously approved the rules Monday, saying they would help the city deal with irresponsible pet owners and limit backyard breeding operations.
   The regulations don't single out a breed for enforcement. They follow several attacks, including one last August by three dogs that left a woman with 200 bites.
   Under the new rules, the city can put restrictions on pet owners before their animals hurt a person. Some dog owners also can be required to have liability insurance if their dogs have a disposition to bite or attack.
   People also must pay a fee before dogs or cats can have litters.
