City Council Discusses Animal Ordinance
The Chillicothe City Council discussed the Animal Control Ordinance in a workshop session Wednesday. The main topic of discussion was the removal of the Breed Specific Ban. That ban currently includes American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier or American Pit Bull Terrier.
The Council is considering strengthing the dangerous dog section of the ordinance, specifically if an animal has bitten a person or other animal.
Proposed ordinances were provided by the City Attorney as a guide, and the content was discussed.
The council wants better definitions of several terms and will continue their review of the proposed changes.
