Yorkton City Council passed a new Animal Control Bylaw last (Mon) night.
Mayor Bob Maloney says it will have an immediate impact on dog owners.
“The one new thing residents will see is dogs must be on a leash if your off the property and we’ve had a lot of concerns, we’ve had comments from a lot of people, children that have been knocked down riding bicycles by dogs running at large. If the dog is outside the yard, then it needs to be on a leash.” stated Maloney.
Maloney expects Bylaw Officers will offer a brief grace period before they start fully enforcing the new regulation.
