KINCAID, Ill. (AP) – Residents say something just plain smells in Kincaid, and they hope a new ordinance might put an end to it. Leaders in the small central Illinois village passed an
ordinance Monday capping cats and dog ownership to three per household.
Resident Jessica Tarrant tells WAND-TV that she constantly cleans up after cats that pass through her yard. Tarrant’s bottom line: “Nobody wants poop in their yard.” But pet owners who have four or more animals at home don’t have to find any of them new homes. Mayor Tony Pezze says dogs and cats already in town are OK. Owners will just have to limit themselves to three after their current pets die. Kincaid is about 15 miles southeast of Springfield.
