PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — The McCracken County Fiscal Court might soon consider a leash law.

According to The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/WpcYns ), the only ordinance dealing with wayward dogs is a nuisance law. County Commissioner Jerry Beyer says that's overly broad. Beyer said residents he's talked with want dogs restrained, especially at night.

Judge-Executive Van Newberry said the nuisance law only applies when a roaming dog makes someone feel unsafe.

The city of Paducah has a leash law, but the county does not.
