Woman calls for leash law after dogs kill her donkey

UPDATE: JULY 11, 2018 6:00 p.m.:

HARDIN COUNTY, Ill. -- The owner of the dogs reached out to News 3 and tells us he doesn't believe his dogs killed the donkey.

ORIGINAL STORY:

HARDIN COUNTY, Ill. -- A local farmer is calling on local leaders to create stricter laws requiring dogs to be on-leash at all times. This, after she says her neighbor's pack of dogs killed her 6-year-old donkey.

In the state of Illinois dogs are prohibited from running loose without a leash except in farm areas. Rose Fretts lives in Cave-In-Rock and she says surveillance video recorded outside her home shows a pack of dogs entering her property.

Hardin County doesn't have a leash law, but if residents want one, they can call the Hardin County Board urging them to pass such an ordinance. To do so, you can call the county clerk and ask them to put an issue on the agenda for the next county board meeting. Their number is (618) 287-2735.

We reached out to the dog's owners, but they have not responded.
