LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock might start a crackdown on stray dogs & cats.  This week the Animal Shelter Advisory Board takes up population control and according to Assistant City Manager Quincy White, the leading proposal is mandatory spaying & neutering. 

White says right now spaying or neutering is only mandatory for animals that have been picked up twice by an animal control officer.  Mandatory micro-chipping is another idea that's been kicked around. 

The ideas are not set in stone.  The Animal Shelter Advisory Board might or might not vote to take these issued to the City Council as recommendations.  The board meets Tuesday morning at 11:45 A.M., 102 Municipal Drive.
