Halifax approves bylaw to stop cats from roaming

Updated Wed. Oct. 24 2007 12:15 PM ET News Staff

Halifax regional councillors have approved a controversial animal bylaw aimed at preventing cats from roaming in public.

The bylaw, narrowly approved in an 11-9 vote on Tuesday night, means cat owners must register their pets by April.

If a cat is found outside its owner's property, it may be trapped and sent to a municipal shelter -- which is to be built and operated at an estimated cost of $3.3 million.

"The thing is we don't know what the total cost is going to be and nobody can tell us right yet," Spryfield-Herring Cove Coun. Steve Adams told


Snow did say she received one nasty email from a constituent who said they'll never vote for her again because of the decision.

Owners will have to pay $10 for an altered and inoculated pet and up to $30 for an unaltered one.

Seniors will be given a discount.
