"No tethering" up for review in Denham Spring, LA

Denham Springs council meeting Tuesday
Size: 17 KB

Hello Everyone,
The City of Denham Springs is having a council meeting on this Tuesday April 14 at 6:00 at the City Hall at 941 Government Street off of Florida Bld. They are proposing a section on Dogs on Cables or tethers, which basically says NO TIE OUTS, not longer that 12 hours.
The City of Baker has already passed this law. I’m not sure what has happened, but the City of Baton Rouge is heading in the same direction from what I have heard from several animal groups and the City Council President. We need your help to force. Please pass this along to anyone you know!!

Sec. 18-56. Dogs on Cables or Tethers; Improper Confinement.
(1) Dogs and cats shall not be chained, tied, fastened or otherwise tethered as sole means for confinement to property. The continuous maintenance of a dog on a chain, rope or other kind of tether is abnormally restrictive and stressful and often results in health and temperament problems. In most case, such long term confinement will cause the dog to suffer unnecessarily.

(2) An individual found chaining or tethering an animal in violation of this section has thirty (30) days to provide other means of confinement, as long as other conditions of confinement and care are being met. The grace period is null and void immediately if the owner, at any time during the grace period, is not in compliance with other applicable laws relating to animals

(3) As an alternative means of restraint, an animal may be attached to a running cable line or trolley system providing that: (a) Only one animal may be attached to each running cable line or trolley system;
(b) No animal should be attached to a running cable line or trolley system for more than twelve (12) hours in a twenty-four hour period;
(c) Tethers and cables attaching the animal to the running cable line or trolley system must be made of a substance which cannot be chewed by the animal and shall not weigh more than 1/18 of the body weight of the animal tethered;
(d) The running cable line or trolley system must be at least fifty (50) feet in length and mounted at least four (4) feet and no more than 7 feet about ground level;
(e) The length of the tether from the running cable line or trolley system to the animal’s collar should allow access to the maximum available exercise area and allow the animal free access to required food, water, and shelter. The tether attaching the animal to the trolley system must allow the animal complete freedom to lie down or enter shelter without strain to the neck or body.
(f) Be attached to a properly fitted harness or collar not used for the display of a current rabies tag and other identification; and with enough room between the collar and the dog’s throat through which two (2) fingers may fit. Choke collars and pinch collars are prohibited for the purpose of tethering an animal to a running cable line or trolley system; and
(g) Be tethered at sufficient distance from any other objects to prohibit the tangling of the cable, from extending over or around an object to an edge that could result in injury of strangulation of the animal and be of sufficient distance from any fence so as to prohibit the animal access to the fence.

They passed a no tethering for more than an hour law here in CA an it didn't change a thing. No one enforces it and no one listens.

Well it looks like we lost last night. Since Denham Springs has it, Baker has
it, I am sure East Baton Rouge Parish will be next.

Yes, one and two will remain. This is how the ordinance will read:

Sec. 18-56. Dogs on Cables or Tethers; Improper Confinement.

(1) Dogs and cats shall not be chained, tied, fastened or otherwise tethered as
sole means for confinement to property. The continuous maintenance of a dog on
a chain, rope or other kind of tether is abnormally restrictive and stressful
and often results in health and temperament problems. In most cases, such long
term confinement will cause the dog to suffer unnecessarily.

(2) An individual found chaining or tethering an animal in violation of this
section has thirty (30) days to provide other means of confinement, as long as
other conditions of confinement and care are being met. The grace period is null
and void immediately if the owner, at any time during the grace period, is not
in compliance with other applicable laws relating to animals

(3) As an alternative means of restraint, an animal may be attached to a
running cable line or trolley system providing that:

(a) Only one animal may be attached to each running cable line or trolley
system;

(b) No animal should be attached to a running cable line or trolley system for
more than twelve (12) hours in a twenty-four hour period;

(c) Tethers and cables attaching the animal to the running cable line or
trolley system must be made of a substance which cannot be chewed by the animal
and shall not weigh more than 1/18 of the body weight of the animal tethered;

(d) The running cable line or trolley system must be at least fifty (50) feet
in length and mounted at least four (4) feet and no more than 7 feet about
ground level;

(e) The length of the tether from the running cable line or trolley system to
the animalís collar should allow access to the maximum available exercise area
and allow the animal free access to required food, water, and shelter. The
tether attaching the animal to the trolley system must allow the animal complete
freedom to lie down or enter shelter without strain to the neck or body.

(f) Be attached to a properly fitted harness or collar not used for the display
of a current rabies tag and other identification; and with enough room between
the collar and the dogís throat through which two (2) fingers may fit. Choke
collars and pinch collars are prohibited for the purpose of tethering an animal
to a running cable line or trolley system; and

(g) Be tethered at sufficient distance from any other objects to prohibit the
tangling of the cable, from extending over or around an object to an edge that
could result in injury of strangulation of the animal and be of sufficient
distance from any fence so as to prohibit the animal access to the fence.

P.S. At least they did change the amendment to read that a dog can be tied out.
Evidently there were no Denham Springs residents that were concerned about this
matter. So a dog still can only be out for only 12 hours.
