Animal Ordinance Changes Considered by Bristol, TN City Council
Changes to the animal ordinance, and possibly final approval of them, are on tap for Bristol, Tennessee City Council Tuesday night. The changes involve a more clear definition of "adequate food, shade, shelter and water" that must be provided for pets by owners. The new ordinance also requires animals transported in the bed of an open truck to be restrained by tether or secured in a cage. Also dogs and cats would no longer be required to have city tags, although rabies tags would still be required. Earlier, council considered banning tethering of pets overnight, but concern over enforcement and infringement on personal rights led to removal of that from consideration.(LM)
