ANDERSON, SC -

Anderson City Council gave first approval to an ordinance that would place restrictions on dog tethering in the city limits.

According to our news coverage partners with the Anderson Independent-Mail, city council members said revisions to the ordinance may be needed before it passes its final vote. 

Under the proposed ordinance, owners would not be able to tether their pets unless they remained outside with them and no animal could be tethered for more than two hours in a 12-hour period. Tethers would have to be at least 12 feet long and could not be made of chain.

According to the Independent-Mail, the ordinance is modeled after measures adopted by Greenville and Anderson County Council. A animal control officer estimated that 300 to 400 dogs are tethered throughout Anderson, the newspaper reports.
