After a string of complaints, Animal Control officials in Orange County are considering a new law that would mandate spaying and neutering only for specific breeds, according to the OC Register.

Most of the complaints that have led to the potential new law are from incidents involving the same pit bulls and the same pit bull owners that have allegedly been involved in aggressive behavior towards other dogs in Cypress.

In the City of Los Angeles, a mandatory spay-neuter law is already in effect, which requires all dogs (of all breeds) 4 months and older to be spayed-neutered unless a special breeding or show-dog permit is obtained.
