Lubbock Woman Bites Back After Dog Kills Her Cats

A loose Pit Bull killed four cats and a small dog on the 4500 block of 46th Street this week. Daylene Stone is the owner of the cats and she wants to start a petition that would ban the dogs from being inside the city limits.

Lubbock City staff says Stone will have to get enough signatures on her informal petition that would make an impact on the City Council. Then the city would hold a public hearing so the council can hear from the citizens who want to ban Pit Bulls from the city limits.

Staff says the council and legal would have to review the request.

Stone says something needs to be done because she feels Pit Bulls are dangerous. "It's like having a tiger in your back yard. You always hear about those dogs getting loose. They got that old lady and killed her a couple of years ago. Mutilated a 2-year-old boy. Now they've gone up and down our street," said Stone on Friday.

Lubbock's Animal Control says dangerous dogs are not always Pit Bulls. They have complaints on Rottweilers, Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Great Danes, and Chows. They say banning Pit Bulls will not solve the dangerous dog problem.

If you want to be a part of Daylene Stone's petition, you can call (806) 928-7549.
