The term "animal nuisances" shall include, but is not limited to any animal that: Causes fouling of the air by noxious or offensive odors resulting from the accumulation of animal excrement and thereby creates unreasonable annoyance or discomfort to neighbors or others in close proximity to the premises where the animal is kept or harbored because of the failure to keep the animal’s pen, yard, lot or other enclosures in a sanitary condition and free from preventable odors.

BGKY C5 5-1.09 Confinement Animals/Animal Protection

Code Description:
When dogs or puppies are kept on tethers, the tether must be attached to the front of the dog’s shelter structure or to a post in front of the shelter structure. Tethers must be at least three times the length of the dog, as measured from the tip of its nose to the base of its tail, and have swivels on both ends. The tether must allow the dog convenient access to the shelter structure and to food and water containers. The tether must be of the type and strength used for the size of the dog involved, no chain or tether shall weigh more than 1/8 of the dog or puppy’s body weight. It must be attached to the dog by a well fitted collar or harness that will not cause trauma or injury to the dog. Collars made from the following materials are prohibited: metal, wire, flat chains, chains with sharp edges, or chains with rusty or non-uniform links. Choker collars or prong collars shall not be used when the animal is tethered. The tether must be attached so that the dog cannot become entangled with other objects or come into physical contact with other dogs. Any tethering system employed shall not allow the dog or puppy to leave the owner’s property or allow the animal to be within 6 feet of an adjoining property line. A dog that lives on this property was tethered to a fence. The dog was tangled multiple times around the fence and tree to the point where the dog could not move. We had to cut the tether to free the dog. There was also a rusty chain collar around the dogs neck attached to the tether. Please use this opportunity to rectify the situation before further action and/or fines occur.
