The Warner Robins City Attorney says one word in the city's law on dangerous dogs makes it difficult to enforce.
Jim Elliott says city council talked about taking out the word "suture" at Monday night's council meeting.
A change in the vocabulary could make a difference to a citizen's safety.
Elliott says the problem came to their attention after at least four people reported being attacked by dogs since May.
Linda Carnes says a pit bull attacked her and her dog, Kawaii, while they were on a walk last month.
The dog died as a result of its injuries, and Carnes has scars on her arm.
Carnes said, "That's what I want to see is the law change, where when something like that happens, these dogs aren't let loose to go do it again."
The change to the law classifies "dangerous dogs." Right now, the city ordinance says dogs are considered "dangerous", if their bite causes the victim to have to get sutures.
