CARY, N.C. (WTVD) --The Cary Town Council discussed an amendment to the town's dangerous dog ordinance Thursday night.
They want to ensure consistency with a new state statute related to the tethering of dogs.
The existing tethering ordinance rules that dog owners may not leave a dog tethered (chained to a stationary object) without remaining outside and supervising the dog.

"It was confusing before," said Raleigh City Councilor Mary-Ann Baldwin. "What's currently on the books: There's a 'potentially dangerous' dog, a 'dangerous' dog, and none of it was really clear. So this takes the ordinance a step further and establishes more clarity."
Other cities in the United States have gone a step further and outlawed certain types of dogs, such as pit bulls and Rottweilers.
