TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A proposal that would update animal care regulations in Terre Haute is headed to committee.

News 10 has told you about some of the possible changes and how they would impact outdoor pets and their owners.

The Terre Haute City Council discussed the ordinance at a meeting Thursday night. Council President Martha Crossen told the public there would not be a decision during that meeting. Instead, she is sending the proposal to a committee.

Crossen says many people reached out with questions and comments and that's why she wants to see this discussed further, before a vote.

This ordinance does not just impact pets and how long and under what conditions they can be outside. The 34-page document also updates definitions for agricultural animals and companion animals. It also includes new rules for beekeeping within city limits.

Next week's city council meeting has been canceled but there will be a public committee meeting on this topic. That meeting is Thursday at 5 pm at Terre Haute City Hall.
