WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS -

Some White Sulphur Springs residents are proposing an ordinance to convict people for their dog's constant barking and howling.
Terms of this ordinance include fines up to $1,500 or 30 days in jail.
White Sulphur Springs Chief of Police, Bill Willcoen thinks it's an important proposal.
"If you come home from work and you're trying to sleep and the neighbor's dog is continuously barking you can't sleep," he said. "There's no way to drown out that noise."
"I think there are entirely too many dogs let loose in the backyards and just causing a nuisance," said resident David Musser.
Other residents say there's just no way to stop a dog from barking.
