Sept. 12, 2012 at 11:06 AM   |   Comments

BEAVER FALLS, Pa., Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Officials in a Pennsylvania town said they are considering a proposal to ban dogs from the municipality's business district.

The Beaver Falls officials said they have heard numerous complaints from residents about dogs being tied to parking meters in the business district and owners failing to clean up after their pets, KDKA-TV, Pittsburgh, reported Wednesday.

"When I walk, I try to walk daily, I tell you I get disgusted because people aren't cleaning up after their dogs, after animals," said John Kirkland, a Beaver Falls councilman. "They got to clean up."

The council said the proposal is in the early stages of research and no action is likely to be taken until later in the year.
