BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) –The City of Bainbridge may soon ban the tethering of animals.

After public outcry, the city has added a tethering ordinance to its agenda for Tuesday's city council meeting.

The city is following an ordinance Decatur county already has in place that would ban dog tethering of any kind.

This comes after several cases of animal abuse involving tethered dogs. One case involved seven pit bulls who were put down after they'd been tethered and neglected.

Another case ended happier after Onni, a pit-bull mix, made a full recovery after a cord used to tether her cut inches into her throat.
