Fort Worth, TX - Council to Vote on Tethering Ban

From Responsible Pet Owners Alliance, the reasonable voice regarding animal issues in Texas. Responsible Pet Owners Alliance is an animal welfare organization, not "animal rights" and, yes, there is a difference. Permission granted to crosspost.

January 20, 2008
The Fort Worth City Council will consider a complete ban on tethering
because city staff feels the new state law is unenforceable.

10:00 A.M. TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2008
CITY COUNCIL CHAMBER, CITY HALL
1000 THROCKMORTON, FORT WORTH, TEXAS

"The Public Health Department recommends that the City Council amend the
code to meet the requirements of the new state law. The amendments would
also include provisions that prohibit dog owners from leaving their pet
outside and unattended by use of a restraint or tether attached to an
immovable object or trolley system, regardless of time or collar/tether
type."
