Pit bull owners in Carroll County may keep their dogs, but face stricter regulation

Pit bull owners in Carroll County may keep their dogs, but they will have to obey stricter regulations.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports (http://bit.ly/1jtDXyN) a new ordinance will take effect Aug. 9 that will not allow pit bulls to be chained outdoors or run loose in yards.

The ordinance was approved in a 3-2 vote this week by supervisors.

The ordinance requires the dogs to be securely confined indoors or, if outdoors, kept in steel cages of a certain size on concrete foundations. A pit bull must be muzzled when out on a leash and anyone walking the dog must be at least 21 years old.

Owners must carry liability insurance and must have their dogs spayed or neutered.

No dwelling may have more than three of the dogs.
