Writer doesn't like dog tethering bill

I just read that the dog tethering bill passed the S.C. Senate. I am absolutely livid.

How dare so many responsible dog owners be lumped into a bill that is geared to reduce dogfighting. This is totally against my rights. I understand that the government wants to rid the state of dogfighting, but this is unconstitutional.

What about all of us who tether our dogs during the day and release them all night to guard our livestock? What about all of us who have our hunting dogs on trolley systems until the hunt? These are loved working dogs.

How dare we be told how long to tether our animals as if we all abused them.

Wake up, South Carolina.
