West Carrollton Cracks Down on Stray Animals
WEST CARROLLTON -- With an estimated 889,000 stray cats roaming Montgomery County, it's no wonder city leaders are stepping up to help with the problem, and West Carrollton is just the latest to do so.
City leaders approved several amendments to ordinances to help their community deal with the problem.
"Just in these two blocks I would say anywhere from 10 to 15," said Keith Tilton, a West Carrollton resident.
"Tons, tons, and tons, and tons," said Linda Koppin, also of West Carrollton.
They're talking about stray cats.
"They do tend to defecate in the actual flower beds," said Tilton.
But thanks to the new rules, that could change for the better.
It's now forbidden for cat owners to let pets run the streets.
Also, you're no longer allowed to feed the strays, and if you do, you can be deemed the owner and face a fine.
"I think a lot of people won't do what we did," said Koppin.
Koppin took in her third cat four years ago, after she came up onto her porch, looking for food.
"We fed them, because we didn't want them to starve to death because that's not who we are," she said.
But now since the city is stepping up, she's going to think twice about feeding any more strays.
"I'm not gonna feed 10 more kittens if I think I'm gonna have to put up with feeding 10 kittens forever," said Koppin.
The new rules go into effect November 8.
If you're caught violating them, you face a $150 fine; if you're caught for a second time, you'll pay $250 and could end up in the Montgomery County Courts.
