McCracken County Considering Leash Law

Jan 22, 2013


McCracken County may soon get a new leash law.  The county Fiscal Court is considering expanding a nuisance law to deal with wayward dogs.

Judge-Executive Van Newberry says the existing ordinance only applies when a roaming dog makes someone feel unsafe. County Commissioner Jerry Beyer says the nuisance law is overly broad and residents he's spoken with want dogs restrained, especially at night.
