Unbarkification

New, 15 comments

The LA City Council voted to amend the city's barking ordinance yesterday. Under the new rules (which still have to be signed by the mayor), "A dog's barking would be considered excessive if it continued for 10 minutes or more, or intermittently for 30 minutes or more within a three-hour period." Fines will start at $250 for a first offense. The new rules also allow for Department of Animal Services hearings for unlicensed barkers; the old rules didn't. [LAT]
