Whiteville city leaders strut past any decisions on animal control laws


COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Whiteville city leaders will not move forward, right now, with revisions to the city animal control laws.

During their meeting Tuesday night, the city decided to review the ordinance changes and vote on them at a later time.

Some of the changes would prevent the commercial sale of eggs or meat from animals like chickens in city limits.

They also would prohibit homeowners from raising turkeys or guineas in the city.

However, the changes would allow for small Vietnamese potbellied pigs in homes or on leashes.
