Lake Saint Louis, MO update: Proposed animal ordinance no longer enables breed discrimination

The Lake Saint Louis city clerk sent me a copy of the new Bill 3213, which will replace the city’s current animal ordinance.

We had concerns about the wording of the proposal due to a news report several months ago. The proposed wording would have allowed officials to consider a dog’s breed when determining whether to declare it dangerous.

The proposal has since been revised, and no longer contains this wording. Read the new proposal for Lake Saint Louis: Bill 3213

Thanks to all of the people who contacted Lake Saint Louis officials and asked them to change the wording so that personal feelings and assumptions about a dog’s breed would not be part of the process when declaring a dog “dangerous.”
