Animal Control Officers In Williamson County Want To Carry Guns

Animal control officers in Williamson County want the right to carry guns.  

The request comes just one month after an officer was attacked by a vicious dog, and left with bite wounds on his arms and legs. The officer says he tried everything to get the dog to back down but the attack only ended when a neighbor shot the animal.  

Right now the officers are only allowed to carry mace and a control stick.  They've asked county commissioners to consider the change and they should have an answer in the next couple months.
