ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The city of Albuquerque now has more power to seize dangerous dogs after councilors approved changes to “Angel’s Law.”
Monday night’s city councilors approved the ordinance. The law now requires city animal welfare officers to immediately take any dog that kills or seriously hurts a person or a pet. Owners can still get their dogs back if they can prove they were not at fault.
The mayor’s administration has been pushing the ordinance as a way to better protect the public.
