I think the city of Raleigh is realing "Reaching" this time for money. I think the real "question" is whether or not a dog is being abused, not if the dog is properly tethered such as a dog run with plenty of care, water, food and shelter. I see this as another tax and a lack of the city to inspect the problem areas by including "everything". I would suggest they increase their revenues by mandating an inspection fee say of 25-35 bucks and approving the "good" and well tethered run dogs. This money would better benefit the city and free those who take good care of their animals. NO, tying a dod to a tree is not acceptable, but there are great dog runs that allow a dog to have freedom (in his mind) shade, housing, freah water and food. If a dog is allowed to run loose, is that a misdemeaner? Is it less expensive and less criminal to let a dog run loose and then pay the fine when bailed out? Who thought up this rule? Who are they? Do we vote for them?
