and they aren't making any allowances for people who already own more than 3. So people, even those who are taking proper care of their pets, who have more than 3 dogs now have to choose which ones to get rid or, or they will be fined, jailed, and have all their pets confiscated.

...this is the reason we live in the country, outside city limits. This is the same city, by the way, that a couple of years ago annexed people's private land that was outside city limits in order to "expand".

This is insane.  What do they think will happen to all those dogs?  Does the city want to cost of them on their hands?  These gestapo state cities are getting out of control.

Someone's going to take that to court.  I'd bet on it.  And if they don't, well . . .  pangif

I have to wonder, was the general public at the meetings where this was discussed, so they could raise heck?  Did the press even report this was up for discussion at the meetings?  I know it's not always easy to go to meetings like that, but these days, with government making decisions like this, it's a necessity.

I'm waiting for all of us to have the choice of a microchip inserted into us, or a bar-code tattooed on us. That day IS coming.

The public wasn't consulted, as far as I know. Its causing a big ruckus. Its on the news. People are angry.
