County enacts new animal control law

Cruelty to animals is now against the law in Tunica County.

Fourteen articles of the ordinance address various aspects of animal control, including enforcement, animal cruelty and fighting, unattended animals inside cars, vicious animals and animals running at large, the number of dogs and cats that people can lawfully own and keep on their premises, and also general responsibilities of pet ownership.
