FRANKLIN — The St. Mary Parish Council unanimously adopted an ordinance Wednesday regulating the ownership of pit bulls in unincorporated areas of the parish.
The strict measures, which go into effect July 1, levy several restrictions on owners of the dogs, including living at the same physical address at which the dogs are housed; being at least 21 years old; providing proof of rabies vaccinations; and ensuring the dog has been micro-chipped.
[…]No residents at the public hearing or official meeting spoke in favor of the ordinance.
