Spooner City Hall

SPOONER– Discussion ensued between Spooner City Council members at their October 3 monthly meeting on whether to amend a city ordinance defining whether a dog or cat has to be on a leash to be considered “under control” and not running at large.

The current ordinance Section 10-8(c)(2) states, “A dog or cat shall not be considered to be running at large if it is on a leash and under control of a person physically able to control it or it is trained and in the immediate company of a person to which it immediately responds and obeys (e.g., a dog playing a game of fetch in a field, or walking alongside its owner or a member of the owner’s immediate family) if such person is over the age of 12 years.”
