Elmore County Commission approves leash law

Posted: Updated:
ELMORE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

The Elmore County Commission approved a leash law Monday night.

Dozens of residents attended the meeting at the Elmore County Courthouse to voice their support or opposition for the law.

After hearing from residents, the county commission approved the leash law.

Their vote makes the state law applicable to Elmore County. It requires dogs be confined to owner's property.

"This law does not say you have to tie your dog up with a chain, or you have to fence your dog in, it just says you have to be responsible for any actions your dog takes outside of your property," Commissioner Stephanie Daniels-Smoke said.

The exact date it will go into effect hasn't been set.
