HOUSTON—Officials in League City say they may start cracking down on dangerous dogs after a 2-year-old girl was mauled earlier this month.

Right now a dangerous dog must be muzzled and kept enclosed with warning signs. 

On Monday, at a regular workshop, city officials talked about introducing stiffer regulations such as mandatory microchips, fluorescent ID tags and sterilization of such animals.

The city is also looking at even more stringent rules for pit bulls.  Those include higher registration fees, extra security fences and requiring owners of pit bulls to have special liability insurance.
