Helena, Arkansas Mayor turns loose stray dogs near the national forest.

This quote is especially concerning:

"When asked about who's responsible if one of the dogs bites a child, the mayor responded, "It's going to be the parent's responsibility to immediately get that child treated....The city owns no dogs, so we won't be liable."

Here are 2 news articles:

Funny thing about this mayor, he is one of those no fee unless we collect lawyers.

Check the Personal Injury column of his website at http://www.jfvalley.com/

He lists Dog Bites on what he is willing to fight for your rights on.
