The death of a Thorndale woman in November has sparked debate on animal control laws in the state. Now, Lillian Stiles' family is taking their crusade online.
Saturday, Texas Families Against Dangerous Dogs was launched. The organization is seeking stronger legislation in Austin to protect citizens in cases of dog attacks.
On November 26 of last year, Lillian Stiles was mauled to death by six pitbull-rottweiler mixes. The owner of those dogs has since been charged with criminally negligent homicide.
The Stiles family launched their campaign on what would have been Lillian's 77th birthday.
