Steve Candor is getting the chance to put some teeth into Fargo's animal control ordinance.

Candor, whose dog, Mischief, was badly mauled in an attack by a pit bull near his south Fargo home in September, was given the OK Monday by the City Commission to work with police and other officials to update the city's animal control laws.


Candor said he wants to prevent attacks by dangerous dogs and make dog owners more responsible for their animals.
