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."

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.
