GAUTIER, Miss. (AP) - A city animal control ordinance that has been through three public hearings has been adopted by Gautier Mayor Gordon Gollott and the city council in a 5-2 vote.

Following a lengthy discussion and multiple votes on amendments, ranging from setting fees to livestock regulations, the ordinance became law Tuesday night minus a provision that would limit the number of dogs and cats per household.

The proposed revised animal control ordinance came under fire during a March 11 public hearing in council chambers when most of the full house attending opposed limits on the number of household pets a person could have.

The Mississippi Press reports (https://bit.ly/1hgYNsZ ) the ordinance adopted Tuesday night excluded the controversial limits of a total of five dogs and cats per household.
