EUGENE, Ore. -- The city council on Tuesday night unanimously voted to establish special dog rules for the downtown area.
Under the new law unlicensed dogs or dogs without a rabies tag will be immediately removed from downtown.
This is different from the rest of the city in which owners are given a five-day grace period to license illegal animals.
Two weeks ago the council held a public forum on the ordinance during which most people spoke in favor of the idea.
