City pet plan for irresponsible owners


UPI News Service, 06/21/2006 

A California city is considering changing the wording of its animal ordinance with the hope owners will take better care of their pets.

The Imperial Beach, Calif., City Council votes Wednesday to consider changing the words "owner or custodian" in its pet ordinance to "owner/guardian."

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the goal of the change is to reduce the number of stray animals wandering the streets and taken to area shelters.

City Manager Gary Brown said the wording change won't have an affect right away, adding: "in the long run, proponents say it really makes a big difference in how pet owners view their pets, and it takes it from the standpoint of a piece of property to caring for a living creature."
