Starting this September, dog owners will be held accountable if their pet attacks someone off their property.

That word coming from Odessa police.

Under a new state law, if you're dog gets loose, and attacks someone, you could face jail time.

If you're dog kills someone, that sentence could be up to 20 years.

Again it's a state law, so it effects everyone.

If you have any questions, call Odessa Police at 368-3526.
