Anderson County Council passed a dog tethering ordinance, but with a major change from the original proposal.

A rule that a dog couldn't be tethered for more than two hours in a 12-hour period wasn't included in the version approved Tuesday night by council.

Leaders passed the measure by a vote of 6-1.

Dogs on tethers must have access to food, water and shelter according to the ordinance. Female dogs must be kept in an enclosure to keep them protected from other dogs.

Tethers for those animals must be lightweight and at least 15 feet in length. The tether must be on a swivel to prevent a dog from becoming tangled.

If a pet owner has two dogs, the tether must be separate to keep the dogs from becoming tangled.

Violators would be warned first, but would face fines after that according to our coverage partners at The Independent-Mail.
