Augusta, GA (WJBF) – New animal regulations for Augusta are now in the hands of Augusta Commissioners
As we first reported yesterday the public safety committee did not recommend approval of proposed policy due to several complaints and concerns.
On provision bans dogs from being chained unless the owner is there, and then only for a short time.
That’s just one of the proposals drawing criticism.
“The fact that the property owner or the dog has to be outside with the pet I think that’s ridiculous I think it still needs a little tweaking,” says Commissioner Bill Fennoy.
The sub-committee that drafted the proposal called tethering of dogs cruel.
The commission is scheduled to proposed changes to the ordinance next week before a scheduled final up of down vote.
