Miami-Dade Anti-tethering ordinance now in effect

An ordinance that prevents leaving companion animals chained outside goes into effect today, according to CBS 4. As noted in previous posts, in addition to cruelty and neglect concerns, chaining can lead to aggressive behavior and dogs that are more prone to bite both people and other animals. Here's hoping more communities across Florida pass similar laws.
