HANCEVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A councilman in Hanceville has proposed banning farm animals from residential neighborhoods inside the city.

Councilman Charles Wilson first raised the idea last year without success. The Cullman Times (https://bit.ly/1RUGmQN ) reports the city does not currently have an enforceable ordinance.

City Attorney Dan Willingham said he was not sure if an existing nuisance ordinance would apply to farms animals.

Willingham said zoning guidelines bar animals used in agricultural production from residential neighborhoods. However, farm animals kept as pets might still be allowed.
