Animal Control Bylaw Changes — From Edson.ca

Jun - 03 2014 | no comments | By

During the May 6th, 2014 meeting of Council, first reading was given to Bylaw 2140 to make some significant changes to the Animal Control Bylaw. First reading was passed unanimously and it will be brought back to Council for ratification at a future meeting.

Some of the proposed changes include;

  • removing restricted dogs based on breed only and base that classification on behavior.
  • References to “vicious dogs” are removed as this now falls in the scope of restricted dogs.
  • Amendments to the definition of “running at large” to include Park areas and roads within Mobile Home Parks as public places.
  • New reference to the Off Leash Dog Park as an exception to the section on dogs running at large.
  • Removes higher fee for “restricted dogs”.

Residents are encouraged to provide feedback to the proposed changes by contacting the Town Office at 780-723-4401
