WCBI NEWS AT TEN - March 20, 2019

Thanks for joining us tonight..

A 12-year-old montgomery county boy is still fighting for his life after he was mauled by a pack of dogs.

The vicious attack now has county leaders considering stricter rules to help prevent it from happening again.

Our quentin smith speaks with supervisors about a potential dog ordinance for the county.

He joins us live in a studio with more.

Scott.... county leaders say this is by far one of the worst incidents that's ever happened in the county.

Right now there's not a dog ordinance... and as a result the owner of the dogs involved in the attack will not face any charges.

However, this incident has now prompted county leaders to consider creating an ordinance.

The vicious dog attack that happened to 12-year-old aden green in this ditch along sawyer loop this past weekend still lingers on the minds of many in montgomery county.

" young child on spring break trying to enjoy himself and for this to happen and for the parents to have to go through this, i was just devastated by it."

The devastation struck the community so much so that just days after the attack, county leaders met inside this courthouse to discuss the idea of drafting up a dog ordinance for the county.

At this time board members say they're still brain-storming what rules they want to enforce and how they want to enforce them.

" on monday when we met we just discussed it.

We got with our clerk of the board and we advised him to get prior ordinances from other counties that we can look at and try to go by them and see when their approach is and how they're doing things in the county with new-some dogs, or dogs that are running wild or loose like that."

District three supervisor willie townsend says since he's been on the board, this is the first time he's heard of a dock attack in the county.

He says dogs being loose or not on a leash hasn't been a problem which is why the county never had an ordinance.

" the county is broad.

It's hard to speculate how many loose dogs are out there without the citizens getting involved saying they see one running around and advise us or advise our sheriffs department to come look at it.

Like i said, ts incident that happened was a first for us."

However, in light of this tragic incident, board members say it's time for a change.

" we have been getting calls with the situation, we don't want it to happen to anybody else, so like i say it's time te proactive instead of waiting to be reactive on an incident that may happen on down."

The board will meet again on march 29 where they will continue to discuss implementing an ordinance.

Supervisors tell me they're confident an ordinance will get passed.

We do have an update on aden tonight.

He's still being treated at a jackson hospital.

He is in icu and remains sedated to limit his movement.

Wepoke with a family member today who says aden has been undergoing daily procedures to clean the multiple bites on his body.

Animal control officer arlin pearson tells us the six dogs have been tested for rabies and the results came back negative.

First look stinger first look wednesday night: areas of showers and clouds return to the area as a weak disturbance passes through the region.

While the chance of rain is 60% the intensity of any shower activity should be pretty light.

Generally less than 1/4" of moisture is expected during the night.

Lows should drop to around 40.

Thursday: some clouds may linger early but sunny skies are a good bet for most of the day.

The mississippi emergency management agency is helping tornado and flooding victims with rental reimbursement.

Governor phil bryant plans to sign the fetal heartbeat bill into law tomorrow morning.

But parties on both sides are already weighing in about potential impacts and backlash.

Courtney ann jackson explains.

Thursday will be somewhat of a repeat of history.

Last year, governor phil bryant signed the most restrictive abortion ban in the country into law.

"and we're probably going to be sued here in about half an hour.

That'll be fine with me."

The state was sued and a federal judge ruled the law unconstitutional.

The state's still appealing the decision.

So, why now?

Why another anticipated court fight?

"it's 100 percent an election ploy and that is really upsetting as a mississippian, as a lifelong mississippian to see legislators using people of this state as election fodder is unacceptable."

Another point of debate has been the costs of the current legal challenge.

"650 thousand dollars so far..."

And what's likely to be additional costs for the heartbeat bill challenge.

But supports say---it's worth it.

"there's no cost we can put on a human life.

Because we don't want to kill out generations of people, our lovely beautiful children knowing what they can become.

There's no cost you can put on it."

Most advocates have said the bill will effectively ban abortions because most women don't realize they're pregnant at six weeks---the time when a fetal heartbeat is detectable.

"mississippi has the highest volume of searches for self termination of any state in the country.

So, we know that people are already looking for ways to do this on their own.

And they do this because access is already so limited."

"we know they can get help if they really want the help.

They don't have to hurt themselves or their babies."

Courtney ann jackson, wcbi news a nearly 7 year old case is going to cost choctaw county and sheriff cloyd halford a quarter of a million dollars..

Jessica jauch was arrested in 2012 on a drug indictment.

She would end up spending 96 days in jail without seeing a judge.

Video evidence would also clear her of the crime.

Jauch sued choctaw county and sheriff cloyd halford in federal court, but district judge sharion aycock dismissed the case.

Jauch appealed, and the appeals court reinstated the case.

This week a federal judge in aberdeen ruled that the county and halford were liable.

So what does it mean to be a "baby friendly" facility?

We learn more in tonights health talk with baptist.

Hi, i am susan spencer, director of women's services at baptist memorial hospital golden triangle.tonight we will discuss baptist's baby friendly designation and mother-infant bonding.

The need for early bonding is well recognized by obstetrical, pediatric medical and nursing research.

At baptist hospital we encourage skin to skin contact for at least the first hour after birth and as desired by the mother.

This provides quiet time for mother and baby to get to know each other.

Many infants will make their own way to the breast and most will breastfeed if given this opportunity in the first 60 to 90 minutes.

Babies who breastfeed early have fewer problems with breastfeeding in the following days.

We encourage mothers to keep their babies with them throughout the hospital stay regardless of the method of feeding.

We often hear that mothers are tired after giving birth while they are expected to keep their babies with them.

Studies show that mothers actually rest better when the babies are with them.

It is a very important time for mothers and babies to learn about each other.

They learn to recognize and respond to smells and cues.

What better place than in the supportive environment and care of our well trained staff.

We believe this sets them up for the greatest success when they are discharged and at home on their own.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist to learn how exclusive breastfeeding helps mothers achieve their breastfeeding goals.

Now it is ole miss' first trip back to the ncaa tournament since 2015.

Ole miss has a better record than they did have in that tournament a few years ago.

Ole miss coming into this one as the eight seed against the nine seeded oklahoma and it's a tough match-up.

Eight and nine seeds are normally one of the tougher match-ups because you're typically going up against a team that is fairly similar to you.

That's going to be the biggest challenge for ole miss.

They're playing in the south region.
