State lawmakers are taking a closer look at the rules for dealing with dangerous dogs.

In the past, an owner would be allowed to kill a dog if it remained on their property after killing or injuring livestock. Dog owners were also held liable for livestock killed by a canine.

A new proposal wants to add poultry to the list. This would mean dogs that injure or kill chickens, turkeys or any other domestic bird, can be killed.
