CORNING, AR (KAIT) -

The city of Corning is adding more animal ordinances after passing an ordinance banning residents from feeding stray animals.

The council will now vote on a possible amendment of two current dog ordinances related to confinement and dog vaccinations.

The first ordinance would not allow dogs to run around within the city limits of Corning.

It would also require dog owners, who keep their dogs outside, to provide fresh, clean water and shelter.

It would be illegal to tether puppies or large dogs to stationary objects.

It would also regulate the use of trolley systems to restrain dogs.

The second ordinance would require all dogs in the city limits to be vaccinated and to have a metal vaccination tag on its collar.

One dog owner hopes the amended ordinances pass.

“A lot of people don’t care," Willis Kapner said. "They walk around dogs all the time with no leashes, and if somebody gets attacked or something it’s their fault."

Many people in the city believe the amendments would keep the public and dogs safer.

However, city officials said Thursday that the ordinance has been tabled.
