January 28, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
The Lancaster City Council has voted to impose some tough new fines on people who own potentially vicious dogs.The fines, up to a $1,000, are part of an anti-gang effort. Supporters say the fines are aimed at street thugs who use pit bulls and Rottweilers to terrorize people.

The city council vote was unanimous.

The new ordinance goes into effect next month. It also requires spaying and neutering of all varieties of pit bulls and Rottweilers.
