The ordinance that was instituted states that in order to be a pit bull owner, certain requirements must be met. Some of the requirements were to have a a 6 x 6 foot enclosure with a roof and at least a $100,000 insurance policy.

The ordinance was enforced heavily on Monday and 17 pit bulls were collected that were not meeting those criteria of the ordinance. Washington Police Chief Ronelle Broussard says that the dogs’ owners were all in violation of the ordinance and that they have five days to comply with the ordinance or the dogs will be euthanized.

The origin of the ordinance dates back to last November when the Mayor Joe Pitre spoke at a town hall meeting about a situation where a city employee couldn’t reach a water meter because a pit bull was tied close to it.
