COLFAX, Louisiana — The Grant Parish Police Jury has voted to form a committee to draft ordinances dealing with animal-control issues.

The Town Talk reports ( ) the move comes two weeks after a dog attack on 85-year-old Bobbie Cheveallier near Pollock.

Officials say Cheveallier died Nov. 29 at Rapides Regional Medical Center.

Sheriff Steve McCain says an investigation is continuing into the circumstances surrounding the attack, but some of the dogs and owners have been identified.

Alexandria Animal Shelter Superintendent Henry Wimbley told jurors Thursday that his department tries to make people more accountable for their pets. He said Alexandria has an ordinance requiring dogs and cats to be registered with the city, although he admitted that not all citizens comply.
