State lawmakers are trying to change a law that protects the owners of dogs that bite people after a woman was mauled to death by 3 pitbulls last weekend in Elbert County.

3 State Represntatives are trying to introduce new legislation that would make owners more responsible for their dog's actions.

Current law only designates a dog "dangerous" after it attacks a human or an animal once.

Lawyers for the owner of the 3 pitbulls, Jacqueline McCuen, may use that law as her defense.

Investigators are still deciding whether they will file charges against McCuen.
