KILLEEN (May 15, 2014) City leaders in Killeen came together Thursday to work on possible ways to keep their residents safe from dangerous dogs after a toddler was killed earlier this year.

Killeen's Animal Advisory Board met at city hall to discuss their current vicious animal ordinance.

On the list of possible changes to the ordinance include measures that could allow residents to identify potentially dangerous dogs even though they haven't attacked anyone.

The group was also discussing possible stricter fence and restraint measures for owners of animals that have been identified as dangerous.

Angela Robinson, the mother of 2-year-old Raymane Camari Robinson, was at the meeting.

In March, the toddler was killed by a neighbor's bull mastiff that broke free and mauled him while he was walking with a group of people.

"Never in a million years did I think I would lose my baby as a result of a dog attack and sitting here I'm thinking what if another family has to go through the same thing, another family shouldn't have to go through the same thing I think that all dogs should kind of be considered dangerous because we can never predict what they're gonna do," Robinson said.

The board will draft possible changes to the ordinance and present them to the council.
