Manchester aldermen to take up pet waste disposal, vicious dog ordinances
Ordinances covering vicious dogs and the removal of dog waste will be in front of the board.
Resident Steven Stefanik, of South Hall Street, pointed out that enforcement of the city’s ordinance was impossible since mere evidence of the deed was not sufficient unless a police or animal control offer witnessed the violation.
Dogs earning such status would be required to be kept muzzled and restrained on a leash by an adult when in public.
Even with the prohibitions limiting the dog’s public wandering, egress from private domains and ability to reproduce, the canine would be required to be enrolled in a behavior modification program, and would be forever barred from any public “off leash” dog park in the city.
Failure to comport with the ordinance would earn the dog’s owner or handler a violation ticket.
