Animal Control Ordinance is discussed


The Washington County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday discussed the Animal Control Ordinance provision for vicious animals but took no action.

County Attorney Richard Douglas reviewed the ordinance, which does not address specific breeds of animal, but vicious animals in general.

The current ordinance does not contain criminal penalties, as the local delegation to the Maryland General Assembly did not support a request for that change.
