TOLONO, Ill. (WCIA) — Village leaders are writing new animal control rules after a recent dog attack.

A dog named Chloe was badly hurt after two neighboring dogs came into her yard and attacked her. But, there were no village rules to hold the owner accountable.

Now, these proposed rules would allow police to penalize owners of dogs who are dangerous or running loose.

Police Chief Richard Raney says the board still has to review the ordinance and vote on changes. He’s not sure how soon new rules could go into effect.
