Tiger prompts Ontario town to revisit animal bylaw

Local News – Wednesday, May 30, 2007 @ 09:00

Port Colborne is currently updating its exotic animal bylaw.

While the word “tiger” was not on the lips of council Monday night, Coun. Bea Kenny did raise the issue of exotic animals during the councillor concerns portion of the meeting.

Standing in council chambers, Kenny said she has received complaints. “Do we have an exotic pet bylaw?” Kenny asked acting chief administrative officer Peter Senese.

Kenny also wanted to know how long it takes for the city to respond to residents’ complaints.

Senese said processing complaints depends on the type of complaint received. He would not, however, elaborate on the process, only to say the issue is being addressed.

“Our bylaw enforcement officer is updating the current bylaw,” Senese said.

Residents in the Gasline area have raised concerns in recent weeks about a tiger being kept at a property on Highway 3.
