Council Could Amend Animal Ordinanace

It could mean stiff fines for people who don’t take care of their pets. The Muncie City Council will today discuss the possibility of changing the current animal ordinance. The new law could force dog owners to shelter their pets when temps go to 20 degrees or below. The Muncie Animal Shelter and Director Phil Peckinpaugh are behind the push. They’re hoping the council will allow them to enforce and fine owners $100 for non-compliance.
