Casper City Council is considering several language revisions to the city’s municipal code regarding animal cruelty.

Casper mayor Kenyne Schlager says the proposed revisions specifically deal with dog tethering within city limits.

“After debating it a little bit on council and discussing it with city staff, we felt the need to move forward with some kind of avenue to give (Metro Animal Control) the ability to address these types of issues,” Schlager said.

The proposed limited tethering ordinance would disallow overnight tethering within Casper. The ordinance would also disallow log chain use and the use of chains disproportionate to the dog’s size.

The ordinance would also require the dog owner to clean the dog’s tethering area.

Schlager says the city will hold a public hearing before councilors vote on the ordinance.
