Marion Establishes New Animal Ordinance

by Sammy Edmonds posted Apr 3 2014 11:00AM
It’s now final.  The City of Marion has adopted stricter regulations to help control the problem of stray animals in the city.  The new ordinance mandates spaying and neutering and breeding licenses, and prohibits unsupervised chaining of animals.  Residents in violation will have to pay fines. 
 
Some opponents of the spaying and neutering mandate include breeders and citizens involved in showing dogs.  They say the newly imposed “tax” takes away their freedom to show dogs because they must remain “intact.”  One Marion citizen told the council the new rules punish responsible pet owners.
 
The amended ordinance passed on a 7 to 1 vote.  The council will review it in one year.
