The City of Moncton, New Brunswick will update its animal control bylaw given changes in animal control practice and provincial legislative amendments. The proposed bylaw updates were brought before Moncton City Council during a Committee of the Whole meeting on July 25th (see agenda). Fire Chief and Director of Community Safety Conrad Landry stated to the Council that the proposed bylaw would include the use of a microchip for dogs similar to what is in place in the city of Dieppe, New Brunswick. Landry stated another change included in the bylaw is that owners of dangerous dogs will no longer have to display signs outside of their homes. Proof of vaccination against rabies will also be added to the bylaw. City Council is scheduled to give the first reading of the animal control bylaw update at its next regular meeting on August 16th.
